What Black History Month Means to Me

Some of our employees share their perspectives on Black History Month

Chris M.

Perishable Area Manager, Metro New York Area, 6 years of incredible service

“Black History Month is an opportunity for not only myself, but also my fellow Americans to learn, recognize, and celebrate parts of our shared history that often times aren’t acknowledged in mainstream curriculums. It’s an occasion to relish my historical identity and appreciate the contributions of those who came before me, meanwhile motivating me to continue that work for those who will follow me.”

Fatima B.

Service Desk Team Leader, Pennsylvania Division, 6 years of incredible service

“Black History Month is a chance for us to collectively come together and be proud and happy. We can really celebrate and appreciate what our people accomplished and contributed to the world.”

Q D.

Bakery Manager, Rochester/Southern Tier Division, 11 years of incredible service

“To me, Black History Month is a celebration of the contributions African-Americans have made to American history and our society. The month also raises awareness and sheds light on the many accomplishments that are sometimes overlooked or that some may be unaware of.

Black history is happening every day all around us, and it’s important that the education and appreciation last well beyond February. The month is always a great place to start discussions and dialogue about important leaders and many other African-Americans’ positive impacts on our world.”
