Black History

Stonecrest values and honors the contributions of Black Americans in February and throughout the year. Here, we highlight those contributions with video tributes. Many of these short videos present little known facts about our heroes while others pay homage to those facts that are well known and celebrated. Please visit this page frequently as we will add new Black History Tributes and activities to celebrate our heritage.
