Black History Month Expression
Black History Month is a time, taken apart to celebrate and remember; a time to remember all the struggles and oppression faced by members of the Black American community throughout the history of our great Nation. Yet, this is also a month to acknowledge and celebrate how far Black peoples have progressed. The Black community has put forth leaders in the arts, sciences and social enhancement in the face of both disdain and support. This is why we at ARS stand in solidarity with our members of the black community in their goal to “lift every voice and sing”.
