teaching at Monticello As we celebrate Black history Month, I want to take the time to invite you all to learn more about African American history.  Learn how resilient and steadfast the enslaved community was to survive.  Remember their toil and tribulations. Their hardships and misery.  Remember their spirit of never giving up.  Let us rejoice in their memory and keep them in our hearts and minds all year long.  Black history is not one month out of the year, it is every day in every year.
