Celebrating Black History Month 2022


“This year, I will celebrate by forward facing reflection. As the lights of our accomplishments become brighter, so does the light in the challenges that we still have to overcome. So, while I celebrate the achievements of women such as Emilie Kouatchou, Debra Archer, and soon-to-be U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, I will continue to remember the journeys of those whose names we may never know, but whose impact has left a lasting legacy.”
