Honoring Black History Month:

In 2020, I moved to Henderson and am a retired resident of the Solera at Anthem senior community.

I grew up during the Civil Rights movement so, for my generation, learning about our black history was as much a hunger as it was an expectation. I created a Black History Month display which is in the Solera at Anthem clubhouse lobby.  

Featured are 48 historians in Science, Medicine, Aerospace, Military, Transportation, Communications, Lawmakers, Cowboys, Toys, Harlem Renaissance, Negro Baseball League and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
