Every February, Black History Month is recognized in the United States and Canada. Black History Month is also recognized in other countries (e.g., United Kingdom, Ireland) at different times of the year. It is a time to both recognize and celebrate the legacy and achievements of Black people who have shaped our past and continue to shape our present.
We celebrate Black History Month because learning about diverse stories allows us to connect authentically with one another. We strive to represent, develop and elevate all voices.
To learn more about Black History Month, visit History.com and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. In addition, we asked a few of our team members to share their thoughts about Black men and women who have inspired them. See their replies in the videos below.
