All of Us at Burg Simpson are Proud to Celebrate National Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration of the powerful achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. As we join together this month to honor Black history, it is a time to remember, celebrate, and honor the legacy of  African Americans in this country.

Former President Barack Obama said, “Black History Month is about the lived, shared experience of all African Americans, high and low, famous and obscure, and how those experiences have shaped and challenged and ultimately strengthened America.”

The second paragraph of the United States Declaration of Independence states: “We hold these truths to be selfevident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

As we reflect on those words, we know that we must remember the past, but look to the future. We must also ensure that everyone is included under the promise of our founding fathers. As Americans, it is important that we work together to help this country be all it intended to be, and more. By committing ourselves to this founding premise, we can uplift each other and become a stronger and more unified America.
