As Black History Month begins in 2023, people who live in the Dunbar community say they’ve come a long way, but there’s more to do.

Keoshia Brown, a science teacher at Dunbar High School, has a message for Black parents and anyone else who wants to listen.

“We are Black history, I am Black history, and it is our responsibility to make sure we remember it and we discuss it and talk about it and teach our children,” Brown said. “You don’t send your Black child to school to learn about Black history. Wake up.”
