  • In honor of Black History Month: I will read a fact concerning Black History: Today’s fact is:

Charles R. Drew was an American surgeon who founded and developed ways to process and store blood plasma in “blood banks”. He discovered that blood plasma lasts much longer than whole blood and it could even be dried and restored and used when needed. Charles R. Drew was awarded the Spingarn Medal by the NAACP, an award given to an African-American who displayed the “highest and noblest achievement” in that year. Charles R. Drew was also a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc.
