The Heritage Calendar: 

Celebrating the NC African-American Experience




The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is proud to have partnered with AT&T to provide educational resources for The Heritage Calendar 2018: Celebrating the NC African-American Experience.

The Heritage Calendar is a project sponsored and created by AT&T (since 2013) in an effort to recognize and honor a diverse group of individuals who have made significant contributions to the lives, causes, and experiences of African Americans in North Carolina. The 2018 Edition of the Calendar features outstanding and remarkable individuals who have made achievements in a variety of fields including education, business, the performing arts, athletics, community service, law, and STEM. Each honoree is considered to be a “role model through their integrity, vision, and dedication to excellence”.
