Black History Month
Black History Month is a time for celebrating and recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. History. Black History Month grew out of Negro History Week, the brainchild of Carter G. Woodson, which was established in 1926.

30th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Program
Ndaba Mandela, Grandson of Nelson Mandela, Co-Founder and Chairman of Africa Rising Foundation
Nelson Mandela had a “long walk to freedom,” yet his footprints still remain.
Following in the footsteps of his beloved and iconic grandfather, Ndaba Mandela has taken the torch — and ran with it. Today, Nelson Mandela’s legacy lives on as Ndaba continues to keep its beacon of hope bright, fueling its fiery message that one person can make a difference. Ndaba is showing the world, through his actions and orations, that Nelson Mandela’s voice and message of freedom still carries and rings true — sounded by a child that became a man under the warm embrace and expert tutelage of one of history’s greatest teachers.
