February is African American History Month

We are honored to be able to celebrate African Amercian History throughout the month of February. Challenge yourself to discover other very important African American Leaders besides those that are most famous. For instance, do you know who was the first African American woman to win a Gold Medal at the Summer Olympics? Or Who was the first African American to pitch in the World Series. Did you know that it was African American inventors who developed refrigerated trucks that carry our cold foods and beverages, created hand-held computers and designed some of our Spacecraft controls? Take some time this month to find out who those amazing individuals are and what the importance of the impact they have had on modern society.
