February is Black History Month!
HATC staff encourage everyone to learn, celebrate, and support Black history and culture. While we have a designated month, Black history and culture should be celebrated and supported EVERY day! We encourage everyone think of ways to do so. Maybe educate yourself about Black heroes who have been ignored or erased from history, support Black merchants and entrepreneurs who contribute to our local and national economy, or donate time or money to a Black organization?
Remember, Black history of OUR history. By being inclusive of Black history and culture we become better stewards of the various privileges we have. Here are some links to help you get started:
