Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) at Highlands
Black History Month was created to focus attention on the contributions of African Americans to the United States. It honors all Black people from all periods of U.S. history, from the enslaved people first brought over from Africa in the early 17th century to African Americans living in the United States today.
Check out our Diversity Reads booklist for Black History Month and enter this month's drawing!
