SURFPAC Celebrates Black History Month

Black History Month celebration 2014

African American Sailors have served the U.S. Navy honorably through every major armed conflict since the Revolutionary War, helping forward the cause of civil rights and equal treatment under the law.

Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet (SURFPAC) commemorated Black History Month today with a presentation of icons from the Civil Rights Movement, an oral presentation of the Port Chicago Disaster, and remarks from guest speaker Capt. George Gaines (Ret.). This year, Navy commands were encouraged to celebrate and reflect on the theme “Civil Rights in America.”
