February marks Black History Month and it is a time for all of us to reflect on and to learn from a painful and deplorable past. 

The many stories we’ve heard, not just of savagery and oppression, but of bravery and triumph must be told to ensure such a tragic and unjust past will never be repeated.

It is with certainty we cannot change the past, but we can all strive for a unified future – one of respect and dignity for all of humanity.
