OIC History

Black History Month
For Black History Month 2017, OIC of South Florida recognizes those who have fought and who continue to fight to preserve the rights which were only gained at great cost. We recognize the preseverence and sacrifice it took to get here and understand that, though we have come a long way, we still have a long road to travel.
