Today, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden are hosting a reception in honor of Black History Month. Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff will attend the event.

President Biden issued a proclamation, stating, “This National Black History Month, we celebrate the vast contributions of Black Americans to our country and recognize that Black history is American history and that Black culture, stories, and triumphs are at the core of who we are as a Nation.“

He continued, “We are the only country in the world founded on an idea. It is the idea that we are all created equal and deserve to be treated with equal dignity throughout our lives.“

The president added, “Black Americans have held a mirror up to our Nation, allowing our country to confront hard truths about who we are and pushing us to live up to our founding ideals.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president, first lady, vice president, and second gentleman as they commemorate Black History Month.
  • For governing officials in Washington, D.C., as they seek to protect equal rights.
  • For the president and members of his administration to receive direction from the Lord as they make policy decisions.
