Paley Rothman Celebrates Black History Month
This month, Black History Month, is meant to particularly spotlight our shared history and the contributions of our African-American friends, family, neighbors, heroes and leaders to our nation. Maryland – our home state – has a great history of African-American Marylanders that we should all learn from and celebrate. We honor great Marylanders that are well-known such as Harriet Tubman, Thurgood Marshall and Frederick Douglass. We honor leaders such as Representative and Civil Rights Leader Elijah Cummings of Baltimore, who we just lost in 2019. And we honor and get to know our present leaders – women and men such as Maryland House of Delegates Speaker Adrienne Jones and even Paley Rothman’s own, Circuit Court Judge Bibi Berry.
African-Americans in our country have overcome tremendous barriers to help America realize its promise of justice and opportunity for all. It is an essential part of our shared story and history – one that is important for us to teach, listen, and learn. When we celebrate African-American history, we celebrate the diversity and the strength of character that are the reasons we are here today and find the strength to continue to move toward a better future for all of us.
Paley Rothman wishes you learning and inspiration this month.
