  • Message From President Gómez: Dominican Heritage Month

    American History is composed of the lives of millions of people searching for freedom and opportunity. It draws upon many different cultures and countries. The one experience common to all is that of struggle:  to make a living, to enjoy one’s rights, to be acknowledged for one’s contributions to the life and welfare of the United States.
  • Message From President Gómez: Black History Month

    In 1926, the Association for the Study of African American Life---then known as the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History---established Negro History Week in mid-February. There was nothing random about the choice of month:  February marks the birthdays of both Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. In the 90 years since, Negro History Week has been transformed into African American History Month. Under any name, however, this event, first envisioned by Carter G. Woodson and Jesse Moorland, has become a cornerstone of our celebration of diversity.
