Black History Month

calcFeb 15, 2019

February is Black History Month. Since 1976, the U.S. has dedicated this month to celebrate African American history and recognize amazing accomplishments of black Americans.

In 1976, President Gerald Ford said, Black History Month “seize[s] the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history,” according to History.com.

Throughout February, the OATI Microgrid Technology Center will shine with a design honoring these accomplishments. Check it out during your evening commute!
