Why We Celebrate Black History Month

Thank you. It is great to be here today. I want to thank Tiphanie Charles, Leslie-Ann Williams and everyone else who had a hand in inviting me and in pulling this event together.

I thought I would take a few minutes to share with you some of my observations about Black History Month and why it is important that we observe it and then invite you to ask questions.

One of the hottest topics in the U.S. today is the Presidential campaign and is Barack black enough or Michelle white enough. Managing diversity -multiculturalism, is our glorious mosaic. In America's ambitious social experiment, we are fast changing our melting pot into a salad bowl. Assimilation is being turned into a celebration of differences. And this is a good thing.

I entitled my remarks: Get Involved, Take a Stand, and Make Your Mark.
