A Message From Our President

Judson Robinson III • President and CEO


This past February we spent another month honoring the legacy of Black History across the country. I got a chance to participate and experience several memorable celebrations geared to remind us of those that sacrificed to afford us the privileges we have today. Many dramatic events occurred that became what we have come to know as part of our history, good or bad, they are still significant events that caused us to respond and chart an action that created American history. Civil Rights for many of us date back to the mid 1940’s but the civil rights movement of the 1960’s is what really shaped the country we live in today. There were pivotal highs and lows during this period that causes us to pause and reflect on the progress we've made as a country and the struggles that still lie ahead. In April 1968, Martin Luther King was assassinated and the efforts from President Harry Truman issuing the Executive Order to end discrimination in the Armed Services in 1948 to President Johnson signing the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (also known as the Fair Housing Act) was initiated by the struggle and sacrifice of others. Not purely great wisdom and a willingness to do what’s right by our Presidents of the time, but instead due to pressure and effective participation in the American system of democracy.
