Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. In honor of this year’s Black History month, every day during the month of February we will read a daily inspirational quote from some of the most influential black personalities of all time.

Today's quote is...

”I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” - Martin Luther King, Jr. ~ American Baptist minister and most visible spokesperson and leader of the civil rights movement in the 50’s and 60’s.
