Celebrating Black History Month


February is Black History Month and as we celebrate and honor Black History Month, our DEI committee put together a short list of some amazing resources to read, listen and watch. For many of us, this is a time to learn and honor the work that so many have done. We wanted to share this list as a resource and we hope that you will listen and learn with us!


From fiction to picture books to memoirs, there is something on this list for everyone to learn from.

The Hate You Give | Angie Thomas
