2020 Black History Month

The Next 400 Years

Recognition * Restoration * Resilience

This month, we will use this platform to hear and reflect on the words and wisdom of historical and current inspirational African American and Black individuals.

May we all be inspired and encouraged to learn from one another and to treat each other with dignity and respect.

The moment we choose to love we begin to move against domination, against oppression. The moment we choose to love we begin to move towards freedom, to act in ways that liberate ourselves and others. –Bell Hooks
