Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. The 2023 theme, “Black Resistance,” explores how African Americans have resisted historic and ongoing oppression since the nation's earliest days. Throughout the month, we will be celebrating the achievements of African Americans in every classroom and at our RWB&G assemblies.
