Black History Month

As part of Black History Month, today we honor Ida B. Wells. Wells was one of the founders of the NAACP, which is a bi-racial organization whose mission is to advance justice and rights for African Americans. Wels was a civil rights leader who famously said, “the way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them.”

We also honor Jesse Jackson,  a civil rights leader and two time Democratic presidential candidate. Jackson pressed for broader employment  opportunities for African-Americans, he negotiated the release of dozens of international hostags and prisoners, and got the opportunity to be apart of MLK’s inner circle during his life. One of Jackson’s famous quotes is, “Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping him up.”
