February is Black History Month!

Community NEWS DuBois. King. Parks. Aaron.

We know the names of these African American heroes and many others by heart. Their legacies are synonymous with our centuries-long struggle for civil rights and social justice. But while America lauds the achievements of these inspiring historical figures, recognition, acclaim and fanfare too often elude those within our communities whose names aren't quite so familiar, but whose impact is just as vital. Black History Month is a time to celebrate the full range of achievements AfricanAmericans have contributed to our nation -- not just those whose names have been inscribed in our history books. That's why this year we're continuing our new tradition of celebrating the unsung heroes of black history.

Who's your unsung hero? Nominate him/her now for our 2012 Black History Month Unsung Heroes campaign: http://action.naacp.org/Unsung-Heroes
