Jamul Casino noted that throughout the month of February, people can celebrate the “rich history, culture and contributions of Black Americans.”

The group stated that it recognises the importance of being part of the cultural conversation about race and inclusion, with the JIV and Jamul Casino carrying out a number of events and initiatives throughout February to amplify Black voices and highlight the significance of the historical contributions of Black Americans as well as the ongoing struggles.

“This month, we acknowledge and appreciate the historical contributions of the Black community while also recognising the role and impact of the systemic barriers to racial equality that still exist today,” said Erica M. Pinto, Chairwoman of the Jamul Indian Village and Chairwoman of the JIVDC Board.

“Black History Month is a time for us to reflect, learn and continue the fight for racial justice. The Tribe and the Board of Directors celebrate the legacy of Black Americans that have profoundly shaped this country and are proud to continue to support the achievements of the Black community.”

Jamul Casino noted the various ways it has and is currently celebrating the month, including committing $10,000 to Many Shades of Pink, an organisation that provides support and resources to African American breast cancer patients, and featuring 31 important figures on the digital screens in the casino and on its social media channels.

Jamul Casino President and General Manager Mary Cheeks commented: “Jamul Casino’s Black History Month initiatives provide an opportunity to acknowledge and honour the sacrifices and struggles of Black people who have played a vital role in shaping the United States of America. 

“We’re excited to recognise the African American community's contributions to our culture, and be part of creating a brighter, richer, more inclusive future for the next generation.”
