Black History Month begins today!

February 1, 2024

What started as a week, is now a month-long acknowledgment of what African Americans have contributed to the fabric of this country. While we celebrate the achievements that add to the richness of who we are today, it is also a time to reflect on all the sacrifices made by individuals who have dedicated their lives to helping to create a more equitable society.  The Association for the Study of African American Life and History has provided the 2024 theme for this year’s Black History Month which is African Americans and the Arts.
