SURFPAC Celebrates African American Heritage Month
The U.S. Navy is one of the most diverse workforces you will ever encounter. Every race and religion, both sexes, and a wide range of ages are represented among the Navy population. And as such, commands take pride in honoring various ethnic, cultural and historical heritage months throughout the year.
Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet (SURFPAC) celebrated African American Heritage Month on Feb. 24 at SURFPAC headquarters. The theme “Black Women in American Culture and History,” was personified by the voices of local female singing group, Blessed, as well as presentations from guest speaker Command Master Chief Haasan Lamont and planning committee members.
Notable African Americans throughout history were quoted and acknowledged, as SURFPAC staff members celebrated the major contributions of African Americans in the history of our nation and our Navy.
