Black History Month is a time to recognize and celebrate the role and contributions of Black people in the United States and in the world. Black History is a part of the very fabric of American history, and the complex intertwining of past and present must be understood so as to envision and secure an equitable future together.

Our future together can be actualized by incorporating a call to action of anti-racist practices into our everyday lives. I hope that the humble resources I've shared below will inspire and guide you towards taking the next step from awareness to action throughout the year.

Peace & Prosperity,
Salomé Valencia-Bohné
WSSCSW President
