#GivingBlack Day is also unique in that it falls on August 28, a day chosen due to its historical significance. Did you know that on:
· August 28, 1955: 14-year-old Emmett Till was brutally murdered by three white men, which became a "flashpoint in the civil rights movement."
· August 28, 1963: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his iconic "I Have A Dream" speech in Washington, D.C.
· August 28, 2005: Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana. The storm, which devastated New Orleans, inordinately impacted many of the city's black residents.
· August 28, 2008: Then-Senator Barack Obama accepted the Democratic nomination for president, becoming the first black man to ever win the nomination and bid for the presidency.
August 28, 2019, SEM Link will have a social media campaign that will highlight the work of our two core programs Experimental Design Program and Math and Science Career Academy that enhance the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educational experience for K-12 students by providing them with opportunities to engage in hands-on STEM activities, explore STEM careers and learn about real-world applications of STEM.
