Celebrating Black History Month
Naccaman "Nac" Williams II, Sales Strategy and Planning Analyst, Jimmy Dean Refrigerated
For me, Black History Month also means not being a victim of the losses but a soldier fighting for the wins. I salute all the men and women who have chosen to follow in Martin Luther King, Jr.’s footsteps by sacrificing themselves for the greater good of others.
Today and every day, I salute all the quiet voices like Henrietta Lacks, who will never be formally recognized for her contribution to modern day medicine, but will always play a role with impacting our future. I also salute those like Angela Rye, who have the voice and courage to narrate and raise the volume on injustice in the world. There are countless others who are paving the way or have paved by leaving an indelible mark, not just for Black History, but American History.
