    Contribution of Slaves, Wakanda and Black History Month
    At the conclusion of Black History Month 2018, we need to recognize the contribution African-American slaves made to the building of our country. In 2009, I introduced a House Resolution adopted 116-1 that urges Congress to declare each Feb. 28 as "Honor the Contributions of African American Slaves in the United States Day."
