Throughout February of 2012, ICDC College’s Hollywood Main Campus recognized the Black and African-American population by celebrating Black History Month. The campus honored the holiday with a corkboard full of iconic Black Americansâ€™ pictures and mini biographies on display.
The poster â€“ prominently placed in the campus halls â€“ was divided into six categories: Athletes, Inventors, Scholars, Civil Rights Leaders, Political Leaders, and Entertainers. Some of the more recognizable faces who donned the large poster were: Martin Luther King, Jr., Bill Cosby, Condoleeza Rice, Maya Angelou, Malcom X, and President Barack Obama.
A sense of pride was felt among the students and staff who honored the many men and women who have made a movement toward equality in a country that was once divided on the topic of race.
And even though February is over, the educational yet uplifting poster board will remain there a few days longer to remind us that history as rich as this does not need to be confined to a month, but should be remembered all year long.
