Celebrating Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration held for the entire month of February and it recognizes Black people for their extraordinary achievements and their significant roles in the history of the United States. During Black History Month, we reflect on what it means to be an African American, remember the good works of our Black activists and trailblazers, who fought for social justice. This month, we encourage you to think of ways to honor the significant works of Black people by supporting black-owned businesses, reading African American literature, becoming a mentor, volunteering your services, or visiting local museums in honor of Black History Month.
