Wow, I’m excited to share the story of the Women’s Army Corps (WAC) first black officers. Let me introduce you to Major Charity Adams Earley. For the rest of this month, my goal is to share with you the history of some amazing Black Women who served our country. This goes along with this year’s theme for Black History Month; African Americans In Time of War. Born in Columbia, South Carolina on December 5, 1917, to a highly educated Methodist minister and school teacher Ms. Charity Adams was the oldest of four children.
Not only is February LOVE month, but it’s also Black History Month. Over the next few weeks, we are going to discuss the national theme of Black History Month: African Americans in Times of War. Some very important people helped pave the path and I hope these next few weeks open your mind, your heart, and discussion with your children and others around you. Race discussions don’t have to be uncomfortable. This week let’s take a look at reasons why we celebrate Black History Month; a bit of history behind the history of Black History Month.
