Perspective: A WIS editorial - 24th African American History Calendar

On Tuesday evening, October 9,  AT&T unveiled the 24th edition of the South Carolina African American History Calendar for 2013. Over the years, nearly 300 outstanding African Americans from our state have been honored in these calendars highlighting their significant contributions and exemplary lives.

WIS is proud to partner with AT&T on this project again, and we look forward to profiling each of the 2013 honorees in monthly segments that will air within our news and other programs during the coming year.  This year's calendar features 13 impressive individuals who have distinguished themselves in the areas of government, military service, education, community activism, and the performing and fine arts.

And they will make terrific Christmas gifts!

That's my perspective.
