Florida Democratic Party Honors Black History Month

Posted


The Florida Democratic Party honors Black History Month and has planned social media throughout February highlighting the important contributions Black Americans have made in the United States and Florida.

Statement from FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo:

“Although we can never properly give acknowledgment to the countless achievements and contributions which African Americans have made to our country, we honor Black history during the month of February as an opportunity to celebrate the legacy and strength that the Black community brings and the importance of Black culture to the fabric of our society.

In every aspect of America -- from science and technology, medicine, education, the law, politics and social justice, to religion, literature and the arts, athletics, and business and entrepreneurship -- Black history is American history.”
