Take time to celebrate, reflect and learn during Black History Month.
Black history is a part of our shared history every day of the year. Black History Month, Feb. 1-March 1, 2022, is a time to step back and more specifically acknowledge the centuries of broad and vibrant contributions Black Americans have made to our culture, the arts, politics, and social justice movements.
