The Bennett Foundation

“We are not makers of history. We are made by history.” – Martin Luther King, Jr. 

This week, the Bennett Family was in our nation’s capital! Touring the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial and Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture. Knowing the past opens the door to the future and that’s why history is so important! 

The National Museum of African American History and Culture is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial monument was built to honor the American Baptist minister, social activist, and Nobel Peace Prize winner Martin Luther King, Jr., who led the civil rights movement in the United States during the mid-1950s.  

These historical exhibitions align with our social equity values because with the right exposure to history, children and youth regardless of geographic location, gender, race, ethnicity and income can then too, promote social mobility and close gaps.   

The Bennett Foundation takes pride in continuing to learn because you can never have too much knowledge! Moreover, a little bit of knowledge can go a long way in today’s world.
