February 4, 2024
Observed every February, Black History Month is an important part of our world's social architecture, and survives as a time to recognize and celebrate the achievements and humanity of African Americans throughout history. As inclusivity and acceptance is central to our identity, this month is also a time to reflect on the struggles and challenges that African Americans have faced and continue to face in our society. By recognizing and celebrating the accomplishments of African Americans, we can help to create a more inclusive and equitable community. Black History Month can help to create a sense of unity and solidarity as populations unite to rediscover the significance and importance of this celebration. MBB remains indebted to the diversity and inclusivity efforts of generations past and present, and we support you wholeheartedly.
