A celebration of black history

Black History Month

Fifty-seven years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, African Americans have made great strides and contributions to American society.

As the nation observes Black History Month, take part in events planned throughout February that celebrate the past and present contributions of African Americans. There’s something for everyone whether your preference is art, music, lively discussions or technology. Recognizing that the Black Family has its origins on the African continent while extending across the globe, this year’s theme is: “The Black Family: Representation, Identity & Diversity. ”Due to the pandemic, many of this year’s activities have pivoted to a virtual platform.
