The Southern District of West Virginia Celebrates National African American Heritage

Each year, Americans observe National African American Heritage in the month of
February by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of African Americans. In the
Southern District of West Virginia, court employee Tamara Roach spearheaded a Soul Food
Luncheon on Friday, February 26, 2016, assisted by her co‐workers, Tony Riley, Marquitta
Wilborne and Sophia Tran.
 
In addition to posters with pictures and brief historical text of prominent African
Americans strategically placed in the lunch room, the agenda included prepared remarks by Ms.
Roach with regard to two prominent African Americans who had ties to the State of West Virginia,
Carter G. Woodson and Booker T. Washington.

The Southern District of West Virginia Celebrates National Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

In 1977 Congress proclaimed the first ten days of May as Asian-Pacific Heritage week to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese person to America on May 5, 1843.  In addition, they wanted to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869.  A majority of those workers were of Chinese descent.  In 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed a bill extending the celebration week to a month.

Since then, during the month of May, Americans observe Asian American and Pacific Islander contributions, cultures and histories.  The inaugural celebration for the Southern District of West Virginia took place on Thursday, May 19, 2016, spearheaded by court employees Sophia Tran and Debbie Reynolds.
