Come Learn, Celebrate and Honor Black History

The entire month of February is dedicated to highlighting and honoring the accomplishments of the Black community, especially those who have not been recognized in mainstream history. This year’s theme is Health and Wellness, so we’ll be sharing events, resources, and achievements from the Black community that focus on health and wellness. Join us as we learn, celebrate and improve our overall well-being together!

Explore Black Health and Wellness Every Thursday

Join us on Zoom every Thursday throughout February for conversation and connection focused on Black Health and Wellness. Each week we’ll be learning from local Black leaders who are improving the well-being of our community through physical health, mental health, art, and music.
