Black History Month

Black History, Our History 

February marks Black History Month, a federally recognized, nationwide celebration for Americans to reflect on the significant roles African-Americans played in shaping United States history. Here are just a few ideas for you and your family to participate:


1.  Become a mentor.

Everyone can use a little help in reaching success. Consider becoming a mentor to a child or younger coworker. By encouraging the talent, skill and passion of young adults, you support the next generation of leaders. In the process of lending your experience to someone just starting out, their fire and passion is bound to inspire you, too.

2.   Read about it.
Literature, both nonfiction and fiction, is a vital way for communities to claim ownership over their stories and experiences. The Sachse Public Library offers an extensive collection focusing on black culture and history. 

3.  Learn about the Civil Rights Movement online.

During Black History Month, honor the struggles and triumphs of the black community.

Sachse is one of the safest cities.

Oh So Sachse, Oh So Safe

It's no secret. We're safe and sound in Sachse town! Based on the FBI's crime database, cities nationwide were ranked to find the safest places. Sachse scored fifth in Texas and 152nd in the country. Welcome home, Sachse. You're safe here.
