The month of February represents Black History Month and four weeks dedicated to educating the community about the triumphs and struggles of African-Americans. The idea of celebrating Black history was founded by Carter G. Woodson in 1926, during an era when only few literary works rightfully acknowledged the significant legacy of African-Americans. Woodson fought tirelessly to affirm the support of this influential culture in public institutions. Today, schools across the United States (US) recognize the month-long observance through art shows, history exhibits and advocacy marches.
San Diego Continuing Education (SDCE) is the largest and longest-serving noncredit institution in the nation. For more than 10 decades, SDCE has increased access to African-American communities guiding students toward higher education and career.
Thank you for your contribution and collaborative efforts throughout the year to honor cultural differences and inclusion amidst SDCE’s administration, faculty and students. The widely diverse ethnic and racial embodiment of SDCE is our greatest strength. As race continues to be one of the most important issues in the US, we must continue to advocate for meaningful interracial and intercultural communication.
