Black History Month program focuses on education

NAACP host annual Black History Month program

JACKSON, Tenn. — Saturday afternoon, there was a unique Black History Month program in the Hub City.

The Jackson-Madison County branch of the NAACP hosted their annual Black History Month program at the Historic First Baptist Church downtown. The goal of the program was to tell the story of black education in Madison County. Councilman Ernest Brooks played the role of professor as students in the the NAACP Youth Council told the stories of these unsung heroes.

“This program serves particularly a source of inspiration because we know when it comes to education in the black community we still have a lot more work to do,” said NAACP Vice President Byron Elam.

Event organizers said it is always important to remember the pioneers in education, especially during this time.
