The work to create a diverse and inclusive community is ongoing. It doesn't happen in a day, a week, a month, or even a year. It's forever-work that we're committed to while we continue to learn and listen. February is Black History Month and we're taking time to recognize and celebrate the history, accomplishments, and contributions made by Black Americans. We'll be sharing facts, events, and amplifying the Black community. Black history is American history that should be celebrated all the time, so we hope that you can take what we share this month further by exploring more ways to highlight Black history and culture.
History is made every day by Black Americans across the nation as they work to break through barriers and establish successful, thriving businesses despite adversity. According to the 2018 Annual Business Survey, only 2.2% of the 5.7 million employer businesses in the U.S. are Black or African American-owned. This number should be much higher and one way to make this happen is to support Black-owned businesses!
