Celebrate our Black History! Did you know?…

On October 9, 1946 The Links Inc. was founded.

Two women envisioned an organization that would respond to the needs and aspirations of Black women in ways that existing clubs did not. It was their intent the club would have a threefold aim–civic, educational, and cultural. Based on these aims, the club would implement programs, which its founders hoped would foster cultural appreciation through the arts; develop richer inter-group relations; and help women who participated to understand and accept their social and civic responsibilities.

Also on this day in 1731, Benjamin Banneker, free African American astronomer, mathematician, surveyor, almanac author and farmer, was born.
