American history is Black history. For decades, Black Americans have courageously fought against systems of oppression that still plague our Country today. This February, during Black History Month, we celebrate the incredible feats as well as contributions that Black Americans have made to shape our Nation for the better. The City of Bothell reaffirms our commitment to making diversity, equity and inclusion a priority so that together, we can foster a welcoming community, free from discrimination and hate.
One way to celebrate Black History Month is by taking time to reflect on our Nation’s history and to learn about the Black American experience.
