Introducing Floyd McKissick at Black History Month Event
Black history is an important reminder for everyone to not take your freedom of expression and diversity lightly. While we all think about how we continue to push the bar, the month of Feb provides us a great opportunity to remember the un-sung heroes and their sacrifices for the world that we live in today. Black History is also a reminder that we can accomplish the impossible if we stand united.
