February is Black History Month

As Morgan Freeman said, “Black history is American history.” During this month, let’s spend time recognizing the contributions that Black Americans have made to our nation. Have you read anything by a Black author recently? Listened to music performed by a Black entertainer? Investigated and learned more about Black inventors, politicians, activists, artists?  


This month, try to expand your horizons beyond the familiar and reach for something new. As always, we’ll be here for suggestions and resources!
