Engage Sunday: African American History Month Matters

February is African American History month; January 17th was Martin Luther King Day. We will honor the importance of these observances by addressing why they are important & the impact they have or should have on society. The words of MLK are still relevant today for the pursuit of acceptance & equality for people identified as non-white. The leaders & history of black people have been defined & degraded by historical (& current) narratives. We will begin with the words of MLK, experience the importance of understanding the strength of black leaders with a TED Talk by David Ikard (link included), and possibly learn a little more about important contributions of African Americans.
