St. Pete Marks Start of Black History Month with Raising of the Dr. Carter G. Woodson Flag

Full Story: St. Petersburg marked the start of Black History Month Wednesday afternoon at city hall. St. Pete Mayor Ken Welch helped raise the Dr. Carter G. Woodson flag outside of the municipal building and said it is another example of inclusion within the city. The start of the historical month was noted, but what may have taken the lead in discussion is preserving black history.
