Celebrated Booker T. Washington's National Negro Health Week
In 1914 Booker T. Washington stated, "Without health, and until we reduce the high death rate, it will be impossible for us to have permanent success in business, in property getting, in acquiring education, or to show other evidences of progress." He launched the National Health Improvement Week in 1915, later known as National Negro Health Week (NNHW). This project helped re-create and celebrate National Negro Health Week to promote exercise and exploration. A series of lectures, clean-up activities, charity walks/runs and National Junior Ranger Day festivities were held at Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site to honor Booker T. Washington's vision.
