As always, Black History Month is a special time for Project 2019 supporters. There are, of course, the activities and the events that celebrate black history. However, the true joy of Black History Month is the knowledge that Project 2019 is in the process of "making" black history. We should all take the time to reflect on how far we have come - but it is even more important that we come to terms with how much further we have to go. We must understand that reaching educational parity is the only way that we will reach true social and economic equality in America - and we must understand that we can accomplish this monumental task only as a result of the Project 2019 Movement.

If you or your organization would like to schedule a Project 2019 seminar, activity, or other event, please let us know as early as possible prior to date you are requesting. Charles Sanford, the author of "Project 2019," and other Project 2019 representatives are still available for some dates during Black History Month.

Please contact us (Call / E-Mail) if you have questions or if you need additional information.

On August 2, 2010, Lucinda Sanford Acker peacefully departed this earthly existence and began the transition to her spiritual home. Included among her many legacies, Lucinda is the "Founding Mother" of Project 2019. The logic and the rationales that were the wellspring of the idea and the ideals of Project 2019 originated with Lucinda. With her words, she convincingly made the case for the need for Project 2019. By example, she proved that Project 2019 is not just the best solution but that Project 2019 is the only viable solution for uplifting black America. Lucinda’s immediate family and the entire Project 2019 family mourn the loss of our beloved matriarch. We will miss her but she will always be remembered as the inspiration for and the guiding light of Project 2019. Lucinda Sanford Acker embodied the spirit of Project 2019 and was the Founding Mother of Project 2019 – a legacy that should be honored by all future generations of black Americans.

Project 2019 is proud to be participating in various Black History Month activities and events. However, what makes Black History Month special is the knowledge that Project 2019 is not just celebrating black history -- Project 2019 is in the process of "making" black history. We must understand that only by reaching educational parity will we get to where we need to be -- and only Project 2019 can lead the way.

If you have not already done so, check out the following Black History Month article, written by Charles Sanford, author of "Project 2019." The article is another interesting and informative look at who black Americans are -- and why they are the people they are today.
