Black History Month is a time to reflect on the History of the Black Community and I am excited to share that this year’s national theme is "Proud to be". "Proud to be" offers us an opportunity to change the narrative of Black History Month, it is always important remember the traumas of the past, however as a community we are more than those traumas. There are many things to celebrate in the Black community, different diverse groups with in our community that represent different careers, cultures, religions, identities and walks of life.Asha Stewart, your Vice President Equity and Inclusion
