Johnson Honors Black History Month

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said the following Friday in recognition of Black History Month:

“Black History Month is an important annual recognition of the great contributions African Americans have made to our communities over the past year and throughout history. Our nation is richer – culturally, economically, and socially – because of well-known trailblazers like the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Jackie Robinson, and millions of others who make their mark by being excellent parents, friendly neighbors and good colleagues. In February, we celebrate all they do to make Wisconsin and the United States a better place.”
