What Black History Month Means to Me, A Matlock Series

February 15, 2013

Here is the third post of our Matlock series, “What Black History Month Means to Me,” (#MatlockBlackHistoryMonth). This one is provided by Pamela Bishop, our VP & Brand Group Director:

What Black History Month means to me…
Black History Month is a two way mirror. It is a time to reflect on the sacrifices that have been made by our ancestors and predecessors that help us to enjoy the accomplishments of today. It is also a time to re-evaluate my personal contribution to Black History and what I am doing to pave the way for generations to come. Pamela Bishop, VP & Group Director-Brand, Matlock Atlanta.

As we continue our focus on Black History Month, we would like to celebrate a few outstanding African Americans.  History is constantly being made and we here at Matlock want to show our appreciation to those who have played, or are currently playing, a part in shaping American history.  To begin this series, who better to start us off than the first African American female astronaut, Mae Jemison!

Mae C. Jemison (1956-current)
Mae Jemison is the first African American woman to be admitted to the astronaut training program in 1987 and became the first Black female astronaut when she traveled into space aboard the Endeavor in 1992 as a science mission specialist. Since her retirement from NASA in 1993, Ms. Jemison founded her own company “Jemison Group,” as well as many foundations promoting the uses of arts and science in our everyday lives.
