Celebrating Black History Month


Black History Month (also known as African American History Month) is an annual celebration of the achievements made by African Americans and calls upon us to reflect on and recognize the important role of Black Americans in U.S. History. It’s a time to deeply listen to, learn and celebrate Black stories and history. Our Sister Sites around the country understand the importance of celebrating Black History this month, and always! Take a look at some of the Black History Month articles and resources from our Sister Sites nationwide below:

Inspirational Mothers From Black History

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

Harriet Tubman 


During those early, dearest days

I did not dream that you had

A large life which included me,

For I had a life

Which was only you.”

Maya Angelou from the poem “Mother, A Cradle To Hold Me”

“My love is like the wind and wild is the wind. Give me more than one caress, satisfy my hungriness. Let the wind blow through your heart for wild is the wind.”

Nina Simone
