Black History Month poster celebrates achievements some have forgotten

The purpose of this “Poster” is to honor on February 1, 2018, the annual event known as “Black History Month.” To that end, I have utilized photos that I have taken over the years of personalities from the Baltimore area from many walks of life.

For the most part, they represent individuals active in the community in the political, legal, labor, religious and social justice arenas. Although in some cases, the individual may be involved in more than one cause, movement or arena.

In any event, I tip my hat to each and all of them and to the professions and missions that they so vigorously support. Indeed, individually and collectively, they continue to make “Black History.”
