February is Black History Month, where America celebrates the innovations and contributions that Black people have made to this country while simultaneously overcoming racism and colorism designed to keep them oppressed. In 2021 we have grown to a place where we are aware of Black History Month and even staple figures, we were taught to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and Bessie Coleman to name a few. The reality is while we are 50+ years post The Civil Rights Movement. Black people are still breaking barriers and making history. Black History has even been made in our own backyard recently (2019) when former Chief Justice of North Carolina’s Supreme Court Cheri Beasley was the 1st Black Woman to serve in this role. Black history is not only about celebrating past accomplishments, it is celebrating the continuation of breaking the glass ceiling for Black people. At the Partnership, we encourage you to celebrate Black History Month with us and educate your children on why this month is important. We feel it is beyond important to know the History of the month, how it came to be, and we want to equip you with the proper information to educate your family!
To ensure every child in Durham enters school ready to succeed, we lead community strategies for children birth to age 5 and their families that promote healthy development and learning and enhance access to high-quality care.
