On Behalf of the Entire Black History Month Committee I would like to sincerely thank everyone for taking part in our events all month long. We have worked hard to provide a message to Baruch I certainly hope it has been heard. Now just because February has ended does not mean the progress, growth, and change ends there! Let's keep the momentum going and continue on the path to success in EVERYTHING we do. Be the reflection of leadership and success that MLK, Malcolm X, and even your children would want to see and be proud of. Black History is within each and everyone of us. You never know what you are capable of until you try!

Thank you!
~BHM Committee 2013~
