Legacy, lessons and listening: Opinions for Black History Month

Black History Month is a time to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions of Black men and women throughout history. Too often those stories have been ignored, lost or forgotten.

Those stories and history are not just Black history — it’s our history and should be a part of our cultural education.

During this month, the future of African Americans is just as much a part of the conversation as their history. Conversations and action toward equality and social justice have been at the forefront of thought for many since last summer.
