What Black History Month Teaches Us About Civic Culture

By aknowles. Tue, 20 Feb 2018

Black History Month offers us a time to reflect on the many contributions African-Americans have made to this country and the world. Growing up as the children of hard-working parents in a melting pot community, the school my brother and I went to paused on a variety of special commemorative days to celebrate the rich diversity of all of our cultures and ethnicities.

As just one person, she could not visit everyone, so in 2012 she started Growing Relationships and Making Memories (G.R.A.M.M) to recruit volunteers to match with seniors. Through one-on-one interaction, volunteers form meaningful relationships with seniors, bringing love and joy to their lives.

Just a baby, his new brother had nothing – no toys, no clothes, no stuffed animals. When a second foster brother came to live with them, all he brought was a trash bag holding his meager belongings.
