Robins’ community is made of a blend of various cultural backgrounds.

It’s one of the things that makes the base’s mission successful.

In February, Robins will kick off a variety of events, celebrating “African-Americans in Times of War.”

Robins will host health screenings on Feb. 1, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., followed by a proclamation signing at 11 a.m. at the Museum of Aviation’s Nugteren Exhibit Hangar. The event is free of charge and is open to the public.

Additionally, Robins will host a School Reading Program 5 through 28 Feb., the "Gospel Extravaganza" Feb. 25 at 3 p.m in Scott’s Theater, MoA, and the BHO Month Luncheon Feb. 27 at 3 p.m. at the Heritage Club Ballroom.

The cost of the Luncheon Ticket is $15.00 per person.

Kenneth Hubbard, chairman of the Black History Observance subcommittee, and a trustee on the executive board of the Team Robins Diversity Council, said the month-long observance is a time people recognize they have more in common than they thought.

“As we celebrate together, we soon learn that we are more alike than different, in and out of uniform,” he said.  “It’s rare to get the best overall team from only one particular culture.  All should be judged and valued not by the color of skin, nor by our political socialization, but by the content of one’s character. “

 Information and updates on Robins’ BHO Month events may be found via Base marques, flyers, emails, Robins Rev-Up and from Team Robins Diversity Council and BHO subcommittee members.
