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.

Not that I want to forget being black, but I would love to walk through life without the anxiety of being prejudged and pigeonholed on the basis of my race. –Rita Dove
