As the country recognizes and celebrates the contributions of African Americans during Black History Month, I want to share my thoughts as the first African American to serve as president of East Stroudsburg University in its 127-year history. 

A year has passed since our nation celebrated Black History Month in 2020. As we prepare for this year’s celebration, I pause and reflect on a period in our country that will be remembered for many generations, for many different reasons: the COVID-19 pandemic will forever change the way we live; the election of the first Black and Asian woman as Vice President of the United States has shattered the glass-ceiling and hopefully awakened the dreams of so many women and girls; and the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 will be remembered as one of the most tragic days in our history, alongside September 11, 2001 and December 7, 1941.
