Celebrating Black History Month

Published February 1, 2023

Black history is American history. While Newport News Shipbuilding and HII recognize the contributions of African Americans all year, we are proud to celebrate the richness and impact of African American culture and history to our country as we celebrate Black History Month in February. The official theme for 2023 is “Black Resistance: A Journey to Equality.” Learn more at The Association for the Study of African American Life and History and at HII.com. See the Black History Month poster on MyNNS.

As a reminder, the African American Shipbuilders Association (AASA) is hosting a Black History Month observance from 4 until 5:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17, in Bldg. 520-6 (James River Room). Shipbuilders can register on MyNNS. For more information about the event, contact William Bond or Kecia Ballen.
