Black History Awareness Coalition, Inc Coalition members
"The coalition logo identifies the need for the older generation leading the younger generation. The red star represents the past. It identifies the blood and struggle of our ancestors. The green star represents the future. It highlights the hope for what is to come. Finally, the black star represents the present. This star highlights the strength, power, and perservance that are needed today to accomplish the goal of leading future generations."
Black History Month started as Negro History Week, first organized in 1926 by historian Carter Woodson, according to Carrie Ann Washington. Woodson chose that month as the time of year for celebrating Black history because of the February birth dates of
President Lincoln and abolitionist Frederic Douglass.
Washington was the second Black woman to graduate from Harding, which she did in 1966. Washington, now retired, taught for 44 years in Searcy schools. She began her teaching career at the White County Training School which, when integrated, became
Southwest Middle School. She taught for 36 years at McRae Elementary.
Logo designed by Bobby Holiday, his Marva Holiday is chairwoman of the coalition.
