Black History Month encourages all of us to come together to celebrate the achievements of a proud people. We also look back at the soul of a century. We celebrate the strengths and the triumphs of African-Americans who are still fighting for equal rights, still fighting for liberty, still fighting for justice. As a nation we should all draw strength from their ongoing struggle for equality. I'm Geoff Fieger. Black History Month is American history. This spot was produced at WXYZ-TV Detroit in Southfield, Mich., on Feb. 5, 2016. For more information about Fieger Law, visit .
