Waveny Celebrates Black History Month
Posted on February 25, 2011
Waveny Care Network welcomed the Reverend Jeffrey Ingraham of Norwalk’s Calvary Baptist Church, his wife Cynthia, and the Reverend Nellie Mann in leading a cultural program celebrating Black History Month. Since 1926, the entire month of February has served as a time to honor and celebrate the many achievements of African Americans. February was initially chosen as it marks the birthdays of two American leaders – Frederick Douglas and Abraham Lincoln – whose contributions to society greatly influenced Black History.
