Did You Know

Black history is a rich tapestry, a tale of the struggles and sacrifices, of horror and hope, an everlasting striving for justice. All Americans can learn from African American history. A law was passed in 2002 to put African American history on all New Jersey public schools’ curriculum.

Here are some quotes by African American heroes:

  1. “Yes we can,” by President Barack Obama
  2. “If you don’t know who you are as a people, you don’t know who you are as a person,” by Dr. LaFrancis Rogers-Rose
  3. “There is no future for a people who deny their past,” by Adam Clayton Powell, Jr.
  4. “Our ancestors left us a legacy. We are their future. We are our children’s legacy, they are our future. What kind of legacy will you leave?” by Rosa Harrington
