Black History Month

February is Black History Month! The theme for 2024 is Black Excellence. While Black histories continue to be important to remember and recognize year-round, Black History Month is a time dedicated to learning more about the various stories of Black people and celebrating their achievements and impacts on society. Take some time this month to explore the resources on Black history or learn more about how you can support anti-racism.
