This month we (MCCC) have spearheaded several Black History Month activities, which featured members of our community, faculty, and a Trustee. As the center of intellectual excellence in Monroe County, we should be leading these activities; and we are. Where else in this county can one go to hear a lecture on debunking myths about Africa, Black Role Models, Achieving the American Dream, and African History, all in the span of one week? The right answer is, Monroe County Community College. That is what education is all about!
Next month is Women’s History Month, and I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for MCCC to lead scholarly discussions in this area. Please send me your ideas so we can begin planning.
