Utah Jazz celebrates Black History Month

Every February we celebrate Black History Month. Black History Month was created to focus attention on the contributions of African Americans to the United States. This month is focused on honoring all black people from all periods of the US. It goes from the first African American people living here being enslaved to the African American people that live here today. The celebration of Black History Month started in 1976 by historian Carter G. Woodson. 

People and sports teams celebrate this month in so many different ways but, at the Utah Jazz, they celebrate it through education, engagement, empowerment, and support. This year 2024 they are launching The Black Book and the Black Book Bazaar. Victor Hugo Green created this guidebook to help African Americans find safe local businesses. This book contains their ventures and highlights of each business’s story. 

The Utah Jazz will be holding a Bazaar Night on February 12, 2024, at 7:00 PM at the Delta Center. Throughout their home games, a select number of Black-owned businesses from the Black Book will be welcomed into the Delta Center. These businesses will showcase their offerings at the Black Book Bazaar on the arena concourse. This is a great opportunity to get to know your local black-owned businesses. 

Some of the local businesses that are showcased in the Black Book include Amboseli Foods located in Layton, Utah. They offer spices, seasonings, and condiments. The founder Sylvia was inspired by watching her mother cook with herbs and spices as she was growing up. Limo Primo is a private car and luxury transportation. They take it to a different level ensuring your safety and fun. Team Money Good founder is Deven Osborne who is a former college football player at Utah Tech. He created this organization for college athletes to learn how to budget, save, and invest. And so much more. Make sure to check out the Black Book and support these amazing Black-owned businesses.

Brenda Hernandez, Staff Writer
My name is Brenda. I am a senior here at Hunter High School. This is my second year attending Hunter. I attended Cyprus for my freshman and sophomore year. I'm looking forward to graduating and continuing school to get an associate's degree in medical sonography. Some of my favorite things to do include being with my family, reading, drawing and painting, doing my makeup, and being with my little sister. I've always been into writing and reading. English has always been my favorite subject in school. I've always liked reading the stories we get assigned or writing assignments and that is why I took journalism. One thing I wish for is to get to know more by the end of the year; more about what journalism is about and making sure the people who are interested in it take it.
