The Joseph Saveri Law Firm joins the American Bar Association in celebrating Black History Month. Diversity is important to us and our hiring practices, and we encourage everyone to learn more about Black History Month and Black/African American legal trailblazers.
Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. Also known as African American History month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” conceived by noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. President has officially designated February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world also devote a month to celebrate black history.
