Long Beach African American History Month
The 2012 theme of African American History Month is “Black Women in American Culture and History.” The theme was chosen to honor black women and the myriad of roles they have played in the shaping of our nation. The NAACP Long Beach Branch is pleased to recognize significant women who have helped shaped the city of Long Beach and served as an outstanding female role model.
