Food for Thought
Black History Every Month
Did you know:
|February 24, 1864||Rebecca Lee became the first Black woman to receive an M.D. degree.|
|February 1, 1865||President Abraham Lincoln signs the 13th Amendment to the Constitution. The Amendment outlawed slavery in the U.S. February 1 is known as National Freedom Day in its honor.|
|February 1, 1960||Ezell Blair, Jr., David Richmond, Franklin McCain, and Joseph McNeil took a seat at Woolworth’s Lunch Counter in Greensboro, NC. The lunch counter only served whites, yet the men stayed peacefully seated. The group now known as the Greensboro Four started a movement. By March 1960, the movement had taken hold in 55 cities and 13 states. Woolworths finally integrated by the end of the summer.|
|February 9, 1995||Bernard Harris, Jr. became the first African American to walk in space in 1995.|
