Today, Governor Roy Cooper proclaimed February as Black History Month in North Carolina.
“Black History Month is a time to celebrate the many achievements of African Americans that shape and strengthen the character, culture and life of our state and nation,” Gov. Cooper said. “The joys and struggles of African Americans are an inextricable part of North Carolina’s history, its present and its future and it is fitting that we set aside this time to reflect on that.”
