Cyrus Webb hosts LIVING HISTORY month events to recognize the past celebrate the future

During the month of February Mississippi native and media personality Cyrus Webb will be sharing the importance of recognizing the past yet celebrating the possibilities of tomorrow. Dubbing it LIVING HISTORY MONTH, he will be encouraging individuals of all ages to not just know where they have come from but celebrate those who are working today to make their lives meaning, preparing for the future.

"It's not about race," says Webb, 38, understanding that many people think of just Black History Month during the month of February. "It's about realizing that all of us have examples of courage in our past that we can draw strength from today and use to impact the world tomorrow." 

Feb. 24,26 and 28th Webb will be working with the young people who attend Cheerful Assistance (292 Commerce Park Dr., Ste. A) in Ridgeland, MS, sharing his project "What Makes Me ME". The 80+ students which range from ages 4-17 will be able to write about their own heroes and how they will strive to make the world better. At the end of the week's activities Webb will compile their stories in a special edition of his publication Conversations Magazine for each of them to have.

On  Thurs. Feb. 27th Webb will be his Living History program to the Pearl Public Library (2416 Old Brandon Road * Pearl, MS) at 4p.m. Joined by Mississippi author Darlene Collier who penned the autobiography MARRIED TO SIN, the two will discuss how she was able to grow up in a segregated Mississippi, endure abuse and learn to survive and thrive, providing an example for us all. Admission to this event is free and open to the public.
