Finding Healing and Inspiration from Black History by Laura Mann Hill -DEI Coordinator
“This is our national truth: America would not be America without the wealth from Black labor, without Black striving, Black ingenuity, Black resistance.”
― Nikole Hannah-Jones, The 1619 Project: Born on the Water
As we begin Black History month, we continue to fight for change in the world in a way that is sustainable, inclusive, equitable, just and makes space for healing. Making art with the community has been my space for healing. I have learned that while I cannot make systems change in isolation, I can educate myself everyday. The more I learn about how my ancestors resisted and made change in America, it gives me strength and affirmation to move forward. We should all look to learn more, celebrate, and center Black History today and every day.
Here are just a few ways to get started:
