How to celebrate Black History Month in February and all year long
There are many ways to celebrate Black History Month this month and all year long. Here are four ways:
Read more books. It may seem simple, but education was the motivation for the month-long celebration. Reading helps us understand and contextualize U.S. History.
Explore your local history and share what you learn. Ask your librarian for resources about local Black history in your city, state, or region. Share these resources and discuss them with your family and friends.
Support Black-owned businesses and restaurants - Becoming a customer supports Black entrepreneurs.
Donate to associations that advance Black history and civil rights.
