Celebrating Black History Month 2023
This year we highlight Black Resistance and Resiliency with a focus on Rest and Rejuvenation. We recognize that taking care of oneself is of the utmost importance. Black and African Americans have not only resisted historic and ongoing oppression; but, most importantly, they have displayed remarkable resilience, and rejuvenated future generations to continue the path to equity!
With this theme in mind, we’re taking a break from live events and offering a recommended reading list of Black History literature.
