County Council Recognizes Black History Month (VIDEO)
The Montgomery County Council recognized February as Black History Month today by paying tribute to this year’s national theme of “Crisis in Black Education.”
Many long-time residents of the County, who grew up in the one-time historically black communities of Montgomery, were present to recall their experiences attending segregated schools—and eventually seeing more educational opportunities for them and ensuing generations.
Watch the video that was created for the event recounting the evolution of the historically black communities of Tobytown in Potomac and Lincoln Park in Rockville, below:
