What Black History Month Means to Me, A Matlock Series

Here is the fifth post of our Matlock series, “What Black History Month Means to Me,” (#MatlockBlackHistoryMonth). This one is provided by Reggie Hankerson, our Associate Creative Director.

To me Black History Month is a time to remember and honor all of the brave, talented, fearless and inspiring people that have come before us and helped shaped the world into a better place for us all. It's a time to reflect on the struggles and sacrifices that numerous people from many backgrounds made in an attempt to gain equal rights for all people. It's also a time to celebrate the many notable accomplishments that African Americans have made and continue to make in various fields such as science, sports, politics, education, entertainment, etc. And lastly, to me it means not only reflecting on these things but looking forward as well to be sure we all continue to strive for a better world for us all.
