Minister Phyllis Williams is a strong believer in celebrating Black History Month, and educating young African Americans about their culture. On February 5 Minister Phyllis Williams stood before the congregation, and gave a short list of things to do for the month of February. Please take the time to review the following list.
4. See "I Am Not Your Negro", "Fences", and "Hidden Figures"
Below are the trailers to the movies referenced above
I Am Not Your Negro Trailer
Hidden Figures Trailer
5. Learn the words to "Lift Every Voice and Sing" the national negro anthem
The following video contains the song and lyrics
8. Go to your children's school, and introduce yourself
Parent's, please take the time to go out to your children's school, and introduce yourself to the Principal, Assistant Principal, and the teachers. Ask them if there is anything you could do to help them do their job. We don't realize the impact this has on our children's education. It has been proven that a child whose parent is known by name at the school will receive more attention than the next child.
9. Have dinner as a family at least once this month
I hope this list will help enlighten you to the African American culture, and please don't stop there. There are so many beautiful cultures to learn from, and if you have any comments please feel free to comment at the bottom of the page.
