Honoring Black History Month: Unsung Heroes of the Disability Rights Movement

Events, Self-Advocacy

The National Center for Learning Disabilities celebrates Black History Month by highlighting some unsung heroes in Honoring Black History Month: Unsung Heroes of the Disability Rights Movement.
“The month of February is dedicated to honoring the long history of Black Americans and their many contributions to society. The first celebration began in 1926 and it has grown steadily over the years into what we now know as Black History Month. This month, we’re highlighting the stories of Black heroes whose vision, commitment and activism helped advance progress for people with disabilities. As we reflect on the past, we remember the incredible advocates who are too often left out of the retelling of history. ”
