September is African Heritage Month in DC!

For the first time in 2012, Mayor Vincent C. Gray, proclaimed September as “African Heritage Month” in the District of Columbia. In recognition of the unique contributions made by the tens of thousands of Africans residing in the District of Columbia, Mayor Gray declared September as a time for the larger District community to learn about and celebrate its ethnically, linguistically and culturally diverse African community. DC joins many other jurisdictions around the county, including Montgomery County who have officially proclaimed September as African Heritage Month.
