Our Own Heritage & History
We are extremely grateful for our African American Heritage & History and all those who have paved the way before us! This year, we also want to recognize our African American Heritage & History at CCBC because "WE" are Black History!
Therefore, we invite you to nominate a CCBC member to be recognized during African American Heritage & History Month. You may nominate any CCBC member by submitting a brief write up of 250 words or less and a photo to email@example.com. Your nominee, with their permission, will be recognized and celebrated across various CCBC platforms.
