A Message from Our CEO
It's Black History Rememberance Culture Month!
Starting with one of the most inspirational black figures in America’s History, the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., he led the most prolific and memorable civil rights movements known today. One of the most iconic quotes that still rings bells today is
“OUR LIVES BEGIN TO END THE DAY WE BECOME SILENT ABOUT THINGS THAT MATTER”
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
This same quote was true the day he said it and remains true till this day. I implore you to research just one quote a day for this entire month and get a glimpse of yesterday and today. Always remember that there is no fight with you, the believer.
Black History Month, observed nationally since 1976, is an opportunity to reflect and celebrate the achievements and contributions of African Americans, past and present – as well as reevaluating our role in making the world a better, safer and more equitable place to live.
Historically in many cities across the country, African Americans were legally denied access to land and homeownership. Even when redlining became prohibited through the passing of the Fair Housing Act of 1968, which made housing discrimination illegal, the practices continued. Today, communities of color are still being impacted by systematic disparities including less access to capital, mortgages, and the ability to live in neighborhoods of their choice. Even when they stay in disinvested neighborhoods and economic investment starts, they are often displaced and their communities face rapid gentrification.
The work of past civil rights leaders and unsung heroes has laid the foundation for what Admiresty sets out to do every day – create a world where everyone has a safe, decent place to live and work.
Understanding history and how the past affects the present can be a building block for meaningful growth and change for the future. In honor of Black History Month, we want to reflect not only on history but on the power we have individually and collectively to change and transform our world. We appreciate the many partners from many walks of life that stand and build with us. They allow us to shape our own narrative and bring about real and meaningful change. Admiresty stands with Change, as a minority & veteran-owned corporation, we strive to ensure that we change a life everyday and provide meaningful support to those who need it.
You never have to fight alone, we stand together, we win together. That’s more than Black History, that’s World Love.
It’s been an honor to share my thoughts with you and I hope that the color of your skin can one day become obsolete. When growing up, my mother always taught me to see a person’s heart, not their skin color and I live by that everyday.
I love everyone who loves me.
and that has been a message from your CEO.
