CONTACT: Kyra Jennings or Jayme O’Rourke, (850)-413-2842

TALLAHASSEE – Florida CFO Alex Sink today released the following statement encouraging all Floridians to join her in the recognition and celebration of Black History Month 2010:
 
“African-Americans in Florida and throughout our country have broken barriers, fought for equality, and paved the way for American democracy as we know it.  This month gives all Floridians an opportunity to proudly honor our state’s diversity and heritage by reflecting on the past and present accomplishments of our African-American residents. I urge all Floridians join me in recognizing the significant milestones of these trailblazers during Black History Month by participating in the many events scheduled throughout our state.”
