St. John’s celebrates Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. Here at St. John’s Nursing Center, we also use this time to celebrate different African and Caribbean cultures. Our Black History Month program has been in development for a few months. With the assistance of our amazing staff in the Recreational Therapy Department, Recreational Therapy Interns, Administration, Volunteers and family members, our Black History Month Program was nothing short of phenomenal. The program focused on spirituality, education of famous and influential African Americans in history, food, fashion, reminiscence of events that left a mark in African American/ U.S. history and more. This was a joyous occasion for all that attended and the reviews from the residents in attendance were all positive and uplifting. - Garland Jones, Director of Recreational Therapy/ Activities
