Google Honors The 'Father Of Black History' Carter G. Woodson With Doodle

Students at Gaston Middle School on Thursday kicked off Black History Month with a presentation that was at times solemn, but also educational, energetic and musical.

While African-American history should be studied throughout the year, Black History Month provides a special opportunity to focus on the unique experiences and contributions of African Americans in our state, and our country.

"We will feature black history performances by dance, poetry, and song, and on Monday, we will have a Black History Museum that will feature African-American women from all around the world". Check out some highlights below, and visit Montreal's Black History Month website for the full calendar. "I realized there's so much that my people have done it's empowering to realize that". "It is a chance for each person to learn about cultures and traditions they may not be used to and we are hosting these events for the campus to engage in celebration so they have a sense of pride and community".

"This month please join me at events around the valley and take the time to celebrate longtime community leaders like Anna and the late Bob Bailey, Ruby Duncan, Senator Joe Neal, and others who are the Civil Rights heroes of Southern Nevada".
