"... Black History Month is more than a celebration of the Black experience—it’s an opportunity to reflect on the defining role it has played in our nation’s journey; Black history is American history."

"Change happens when we feel emboldened to point out what is holding us back. We should never rest on our laurels. There is always something to work on. There's always room for innovation. There's always room for the next step."

"For me, being Black is about being proud, authentic, strong, resilient, and courageous. I come from a deep, rich culture as part of both the African diaspora and being Latina. I want to share that with others, and I want others to share their culture and heritage with me."
