Throughout February, we will introduce members of our team, sharing what Black History Month means to them as well as who inspires them. Frederick Waithe, Executive Director, Pricing at Vericast, sees Black History Month as a great opportunity to re-connect with family and friends and discuss not only historical events but current events in the historical context of the African-American and African-Diasporic experience. “History is full of teaching moments that remind us everything is connected,” he said.
Who would he like to spend the day with? “I’d have to go with Frederick Douglass, not just because I’m named after him but because of the multiple and incredible transformative journeys he moved through in his life. I’d like to get his personal perspectives on how he dealt with adversity.”
