What a wonderful tribute to our beloved friend Jose Carrillo.The Latino community is one of the fastest growing groups in Rock County. For “Tales of Our Heritage”, the Beloit Even Start Dancers will take to the stage at the Janesville Performing Arts Center to showcase their traditional dancing - toe tapping fun!Rosamaria Laursen will introduce this segment, the history of Latinos in our community and will introduce our special video interviewee, the late José Carrillo, who had made his way to America, worked in the fields as a migrant worker, ended up in Wisconsin, then worked at GM for 30 years. He went back to school, determined to improve his life, and the lives of others, became an engineer at GM and also took an important leadership role in the UAW Local 95. In his retirement, José worked with the School District of Janesville to help better the lives of Latino students and families. Sadly, our friend José passed away from health complications just a few months after our interview. We are dedicating “Tales of Our Heritage” in José Carrillo’s memory.#storiesmatter #everyonehasastory #latinocommunity #GM #generalmotors #janesvilleareastoriesTickets available at: janesvillepac.org/box-office/?eid=99029&edid=0 ...

Why Black History Month? Read on: In 1926 Carter G. Woodson, a black educator, initiated a celebration known as NegroHistory Week. Woodson selected a week in February because that's when AfricanAmericans celebrated the birthdays of two heroes, Frederick Douglass (famousAbolitionist, runaway slave, writer, U.S. Ambassador, etc.) and President AbrahamLincoln (The Great Emancipator, etc.). The purpose of that first Negro History Week wasto recognize the importance of Black History to the United States of America. Woodson never intended the week to be celebrated indefinitely.According to historian John Hope Franklin, Woodson "fervently hoped that soon thehistory of African Americans would become an integral part of American History" andwould not need special recognition. In succeeding years until his death in 1950, Woodsoncontinued to express the hope that Negro History Week would outlive its usefulness.In 1976, Negro History Week became Black History Month. Of course taking time torecognize the contributions of African Americans has other ethnic groups wondering whythey aren't given a day, a week, a month, etc. The bottom line is simply that AfricanAmericans are the only group of people who have been taken to these shores against theirwill, forced to work involuntarily in the abhorred system of chattel slavery, givenfreedom, and then prevented from advancing for no other reason then the color of theirskin. They have a rich history and culture, which was stolen from them when they werekidnapped from Africa. They have been involved in developing our American Republicsince the first shots at Lexington and Concord.The history of Black American contributions to the United States has been largelyunknown among mainstream U.S.A. Since 1926, thanks to people like Carter G.Woodson, Black Americans have been given some recognition for their efforts indeveloping our Nation. Some refer to this recognition as tokenism. As Maya Angelou, thefamous Black Poet, has said, "we'll take a day, a week, a month, whatever you'll give usuntil we are fairly recognized in America.So, stand up America and enjoy our diversity. Help us celebrate the contributions ofAfrican Americans and all other ethnic groups. It is in our diversity that we developstrength. It is in our knowledge that we have power and understanding. ...
