We are pleased to share day XVI of 540’s 2nd Annual Digital Black History Month Education Campaign
When talking about Black leaders and black excellence we often times over look the under 18 crowd. It’s a shame since historically young people have been the changemakers and changeseekers that have made contributions that have changed the world historically and in modern day. We recognize the Voice of the Young people during this years’ campaign.

About the Campaign
Every day throughout the month of February 540Blog will devote space to sharing Little Known Facts About Black Americans Throughout History. For us every month is Black History Month but we recognize and support the continuous need to take time and space to put a special spotlight on the accomplishments of Black and brown Americans from all ethnicities that have literally changed the course of history and yet have legacies that are not know by the masses.
