The Post-Standard and InterFaith Works of CNY coordinates a regular feature for its audiences entitled, Daily Inspiration. Dr. Keith Alford, associate professor of social work and member of the InterFaith Works Board of Directors, authored several inspirations in February, including a feature on February 8 where he reflects on stories of survival, hard times, triumph, happiness, and achievement through the pictures and captions in his family’s albums. Alford says, “we honor the diversity of our nation in recognizing February as Black History Month,” and references poet laureate Maya Angelou’s insights on the importance of knowing and making history.
