Black History Month is a time to reflect and honor past leaders in the Black community that have made invaluable contributions to society.  It is also a time to honor those present leaders that continue to make a difference, as we have seen with the recent historic presidential elections

During this time we are also reminded of the great progress we have made as a nation, what we can accomplish through dedication and hard work, and the bright future that lies ahead.  In this great democracy of hope and opportunity, let us not forget that all things are truly possible,” said Diaz-Balart.
