Black History Month is an intentional time to highlight the achievements of African Americans in our country and call to mind the important and often forgotten roles Black people played in United States history. During the month of February, we will be celebrating Black health care heroes in our nation as well as Black health care heroes within Kettering Health Network. Each week, we will be sending you resources like books, podcasts, documentaries, recipes, movies, and TV shows that celebrate Black life to learn more about the Black experience and Black history.
Resources for week one will be posted on Thursday, February 4 and weeks two – four will be posted every Monday. We invite you to come back to this page each week and join us in celebrating Black History Month.
