Living the Legacy
Black History Month is a time to celebrate the achievements of African-Americans. Although it is traditionally celebrated in February, the accomplishments and history of African-Americans can be celebrated year-round.
WRAL-TV celebrates Black History Month with Living the Legacy. This month-long campaign, which includes a series of public service announcements and weekly news stories, spotlights the accomplishments of local individuals who are living the legacy of their ancestry and great African-American leaders.
