Celebrating Black History Month Across the Country

We were so excited to see how Black History Month was celebrated with such great commitment and enthusiasm across the country – great job and thank you.

Some sites, like Nassau, took some of the ideas and adapted them with a local twist by recognizing some of their local African America influencers – great idea. Others took the opportunity to incorporate a personal element into their Black History Month events. As an example, David Bonner, GM at CARTA, celebrated notable African American trailblazers like Jackie Robinson, Shirly Chisholm and Hank Aaron in his daily morning emails. And, Mary McClain, GM San Francisco Paratransit, offered her employees a chance to write about an African American who had influenced their lives. The statements, which came from all levels of team, were featured on the site’s focus board and highlighted a variety of people including Martin Luther King, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, several authors, relatives, high school teachers, and even one of their very own Road Supervisor/Trainers.

Finally – a shout out to Hudson Link who took the posters we provided for Transit Equity Day, made them site specific, and then connected the day with the week’s current event (i.e., Bernie Sanders’ meme).

Thank you to all who participated in celebrating Black History month and making it a success.
