Every February, organizations across the country dedicate the month to celebrating the history and accomplishments of Black Americans. As we look ahead to Black History Month in February 2023, we continue to commemorate year-round the Black Americans who have fought repression from America’s earliest days. Celebrating the 2023 theme of “Black Resistance,” we are proud to represent speakers that continue to fight repression, tackle systemic racism, and push for racial equity and justice.
