While we provide you with quotes on the black celebrities, politicians, artists and entertainers with birthdays this month, as well as the black facts of the day which inform you on what went on in this day in history, we also have another treat for you.

We will publish a landmark quote from an African American legend every day of Black History Month.

Today, February 14th, we have a quote from civil rights activist, investment banker and presidential advisor Vernon Jordan.

“What I know about this world is white people will take care of themselves. And what I have learned is that if you are where they are on an equal basis, they cannot take care of themselves without taking care of you.”
