Woodson for Black History Month

African American History Month events around Kern County

In addition to celebrating the grassroots community work of several organizations including the Bronze Heat, Humble Beginnings, Murture Sisters, Paterson Cares and Save the Village, the city also raised the commemorative red, black and green flag, known as the Afro-American Flag, outside of City Hall. "Our history is much older than that so, I wanted the kids to understand that and have a sense of pride about who they are".

Fort Valley is a historic black university, or HBCU for short.

The message was ripe with material to poke fun at, like Vank not knowing what the word "sojourner" means and her need to cap off the Black History tweet on an implied #AllLivesMatter note. Woodson earn a masters degree from the University of Chicago and become the second African-American ever to receive a doctorate from Harvard.

"Our events are absolutely open to students of any race", Green, said.


"When you consider today's situation, you see all kinds of ads on television about ancestry and family history", Morris said, noting Woodson's endeavor was a massive undertaking.

"While Black History month is only one month long, it is my honest hope that all members of our community will keep the values of diversity and inclusion at the forefront throughout the year". "It helps for us to remember what our history is as well in this country and to never forget that", said manager of Just Goods Fair Trade Marketplace, Linda Castree.

"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". "We have a unique responsibility to learn from our history".
