Honoring Black History Month at Trinity
Black History Month, also called African-American History Month, has been observed in the United States for 53 years. Wednesday February 1, – Wednesday, March 1, 2023 is a time to focus attention on the amazing contributions of African-Americans to the United States. It honors all Black people from all periods of U.S. history. We at Trinity Dallas encourage our membership to learn and grow in understanding of the African-American story.
