The DNC’s Chair Rep Thoughts on Black History Month


black-history-monthDNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement in recognition of Black History Month:

“This February, as we observe Black History Month, it’s an opportunity to celebrate the invaluable contributions that African Americans have made to our nation, while recognizing that our work is far from finished in the fight against discrimination and racial inequality.

“We celebrate history’s champions of justice – extraordinary leaders like Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks and so many more – as well as our modern-day history makers such as President Barack Obama who represents the great progress we’ve made. These are men and women who have paved the way for the countless other great thinkers, innovators, inventors, athletes, artists and entrepreneurs who will continue to shape our shared future.

“But most importantly, Black History Month is a time to remember all the ordinary, humble and hopeful men and women those towering figures represent. We remember Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray and Trayvon Martin, and we honor all the nameless, faceless citizens whose personal stories would remind us that the struggle for economic and racial justice continues.

“That is a legacy well worth celebrating, and theirs are the stories we look to every day in the Democratic Party as we fight for equality and opportunity for future generations.”
