National Black History Month

Photos by Staff Sgt. Grace Lee

Thunderbolts ate from a lunch buffet of southern-style barbecue favorites including barbecue chicken, pulled pork, green beans and more.

The chocolate-vanilla cake served at the Black History Month luncheon sits decorated with this year’s theme. During the luncheon, participants were educated about the history behind the month and the achievements by African-Americans were highlighted.

Maj. Lewis Sorvillo, 56th Communications Squadron commander, looks at African-American literature displayed during the Black History Month luncheon Feb. 25 at Luke Air Force Base. The books were provided from the base library.

Ben Bruce, 56th Fighter Wing ground safety manager and Black History Month guest speaker, spoke to Thunderbolts about African-American history, his family history and more. This year’s theme was “Hallowed Grounds: Sites of African-American Memories” which was selected by the Association for the Study of African-American Life and History.

Thunderbolts sing the African-American Anthem titled, “Lift Every Voice and Sing” at the luncheon. Americans celebrate Black History Month every year in February.
