Black History Month is an opportunity to remember our past and celebrate our accomplishments. This history is all of our stories — hard work in the face of unimaginable obstacles, ordinary lives lived, and extraordinary achievements that continue to shape every aspect of the American experience.
We need to look no further than our NYCHA colleagues and residents to see this spirit at work today. As this month comes to a close, we remind ourselves that Black History cannot just span a short month but is part of the rich history of our country and will continue to be a part of our present and our future.
This year’s Black History Month theme is “African Americans in Times of War.” We welcome you to celebrate with us and NYCHA’s NAACP Chapter on Wednesday, February 28 from 6pm-8pm in the Ceremonial Room at 90 Church Street (5th Floor). The event will include opening remarks by Chair & CEO Shola Olatoye, a speech on the history of the NAACP, a spoken word performance, and Black History Trivia!
We hope to see you there.
Director of Employee Engagement
