SAN JOSE, CA – On Wednesday, February 6, the Santa Clara County Board of Education signed a resolution formally recognizing February as National African American History Month. Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) will host a variety of activities throughout the month to mark the observance.
By signing this resolution both the County Board of Education and SCCOE recognize the courageous fight for the rights, liberties, and freedoms for African Americans and all Americans and encourages educators, students, and families to learn about the heritage and achievements of African Americans.
To honor the month, the SCCOE will highlight positive contributions of African Americans throughout history via social media, and host lectures on a variety of topics including Black Hair & Beauty, Black in Education and a conversation on the meaning of black history month featuring Vice Mayor Chappie Jones, Fire Chief Curtis Jacobson, and Milan Balinton, Executive Director of the African American Community Service Agency.
