#FlashBackFriday: I closed out #BlackHistoryMonth with a visit to @PrideRoadLLC.
This black-owned, family-owned business is a great example of hard work and persistence paying off and building generational success in Georgia’s Fourth Congressional District.

As a recipient of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Value-Added Producer Grant (VAPG), I hope that their story will inspire other minority farmers to put themselves out their and learn more about grant programs that can benefit their businesses and their families.

As #BlackHistoryMonth ends & #WomensHistoryMonth begins, my office wants to highlight Myra Richardson.
 
An activist, entrepreneur & @SouthernU_BR Poli Sci major, Myra founded a consulting group & is the youngest ED of the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Black Chamber of Commerce. 1/3

Called to activism in 2016, she helped lead a march that brought thousands together to protest police violence.
 
From protest to policy, her transformational activism led her to be recognized by the Obama Admin. Myra also received a 40 Under 40 Award by the BR Biz Report. 2/3

To Myra, #BlackHistoryMonth means celebrating our legacy while creating the future. She believes there shouldn’t be a peak moment when protecting Black futures but centering the work in our personal lives. 3/3

As #BlackHistoryMonth comes to a close, I want to highlight Elwood “Bingo” DeMoss. Born in Topeka, he is considered one of the best second basemen in Negro League history.

Beyond his stellar stats, he also had a passion for supporting the next generation of Black athletes.
