Celebrating Black History Month

February marks the start of Black History Month, a time for us to honor and celebrate the impact that African Americans have had on our society. This annual celebration commemorates the achievements, leadership, and innovation of African Americans throughout history, including the continued struggles with adversity to achieve the American dream.

Black History Month celebrations offer many opportunities for everyone to get involved, including:

  • Exhibits to broaden your knowledge of the history and culture of African Americans
  • Opportunities to listen to individuals' stories and learn from Black History Month events
  • Ways to join advocacy efforts this month and beyond to continue building a better society

Below is a list of events in states that Glick serves; this isn’t an exhaustive list, so make sure to check out your local community for more!
