Albany - - A celebration of pride and culture at the Marine Corp Logistics Base.

Thursday morning, the base held its annual Black History Program.

This year's theme is "From Slavery to Freedom: The story of Africans in the Americas".

Guests heard poetry, the history of spirituals, and a presentation from a former officer in the U.S. Air Force.  

"Our past, the African American past is the only one that we're having to hold black history months in order to gain some additional education regarding our history. Our history did not come to us easily. First of all the struggles and all the accomplishments did not come by easily and it's an honor for me to be a messenger," says speaker Mary Ellis.

The base invited several community leaders to help them celebrate the occasion.
