Black History Month gives everyone the opportunity to share, celebrate and understand the impact of African American heritage and culture. This month was created to honor the contributions, triumphs, challenges, and legacies of African Americans and their central role in U.S. history.
In the current times, Black History Month encourages the recognition and study of the achievements of African Americans year-round. With racial justice currently at the center of national conversation, it is vital to continue to reflect on what it means to commemorate and celebrate black history on an ongoing basis.
