Celebrating Black History Month
Today, my mentoring program partnered with Kappa Alpha Psi and presented a program on Black History month. The speakers highlighted the achievements of black inventors as well as the importance of an education. At the end of the program, the mentors, mentees and one member of the Kappas formed three groups and played a game to guess the name of African Americans who made significant contributions to society and it was interesting that some of us didn't know who these individuals were even when given clues. This signaled to me how important it is that we keep abreast of our history not only for the month of February but all year around.
