RPNM honors African Americans during Black History Month.
Albuquerque, February 1—Black History Month begins today, a time to recognize and celebrate the many accomplishments of African Americans in our great nation. They have played a vital role in shaping our country and have made extraordinary contributions.
The Party pays tribute to African Americans during this special month, a time to reflect on their culture, struggles and successes.
In 1976 President Ford recognized February as Black History Month to pay tribute to African Americans past and present. He told Americans to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”
