Pushing For Racial Justice This Black History Month and Beyond
It's Black History month and our IGNITE community continues to push for racial justice in America.
Black History Month was first recognized at the Federal level in 1976 to push back against years of denial of Black history in America. It is sad to say that almost half a century later, efforts to prevent the teaching of Black history continue. The U.S. Supreme Court's imminent affirmative action ruling will likely also undermine representative democracy.
