#BlackHistoryMonth Essential Reading List
Black History Month is here, and we are proud to share our Essential Reading List, brought to you by our Anti-Racism Task Force team.
Reading is a great way to commemorate this month, further your knowledge on the accomplishments and contributions Black people have had on American History, and reflect on the inequalities and injustices African-Americans have faced — and continue to face today.
