The National Park Service Celebrates Black History Month

National Park Service

Using the illustrious poem from Maya Angelou’s Still I Rise, the National Park Service celebrates Black History Month.

The National Park Service is committed to telling the stories of Americans.  Stories that have stitched together the very seams by which this country stands.  We take this moment to honor the history, resilience, and beauty of the African American experience, using a backdrop of our nation’s most historic parks and sites. For all those who were lost.  For all those who were stolen.  For all those who were left behind.  For all those who were not forgotten.  This film is part of broader efforts by the National Park Service and the 400 Years of African American History Commission to honor our history and our people.
