CYS Celebrates Black History Month
Meet the CYS team and hear how they celebrate the historic contributions, rich cultural heritage, and courageous power of Black people throughout history.
“Black History Month to me is a time where we celebrate and commemorate the accomplishments of Black Americans who contributed to humanity. During the Month of February, we honor those Change Makers who made a difference through their leadership, contributions and sacrifices throughout history so we can have a better life and every generation of all races will continue to benefit from the achievements of so many of our Black Pioneers.”
- Kenneth Green, CHC Program Manager
Alesia Grant, Clinical Case Manager: [Favorite Quote] “Nobody in the world, nobody in history, has ever gotten their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of the people who were oppressing them.”
Angela Davis once said, "It is in collectivities that we find reservoirs of hope and optimism.” ― Black History Month is a dedicated time to stop and ensure we celebrate and uplift Black leaders that have and still are working to find those reservoirs of hope and optimism."
