Antonio Thomas is a Black History Maker of Alabama

Black History reminds me of whom I am and what can be accomplished when we come together with the help of the almighty God.
Black History means that we are more the conquerors as we trace the roots of our ancestor and their contributions which gives us strength to move forward in challenging times, as we still have work to do. someone once said that without black History there would be no History. We celebrate History as we continue to make History. -Rev. Antonio Thomas
