Celebrating Black History

Celebrating Black History

As we enter the month of February, we are presented with an opportunity to reflect, celebrate, and honor the rich heritage and contributions of black people. It is with great enthusiasm that we acknowledge and observe Black History.

Throughout history, Africans and African Americans have played a pivotal role in shaping and leading our world, making significant contributions in various fields such as inventions, science, literature, art, politics, and more. This month provides us with a dedicated time to recognize, appreciate, and honor the achievements and resilience of the black people in this country.

This month, we encourage everyone in our community here at Children’s Institute to take part in activities that promote understanding, education, and unity. Whether it's attending events, reading literature, or engaging in conversations that amplify the voices of the black community, let us all actively participate in fostering an inclusive environment.

We are committed to fostering diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging within Children’s Institute and our communities, and Black History Month serves as a reminder of the importance of recognizing, respecting, and honoring the unique perspectives and experiences that everyone brings to the table.

Let us use this month as an opportunity for education, reflection, and growth. By celebrating Black History, we contribute to a more inclusive and understanding society.

I have also included the attachment, "A Black History Primer on African Americans Fight for Equality - 5 Essential Reads"

Enjoy, and thank you for joining us in commemorating and elevating Black History Month.
