Read, Watch, Listen Resources Celebrating Black History Month

We invite you to view the list of our Read, Watch, & Listen Resources, celebrating Black History Month, below. The Chapter's Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (EDIB) Committee, will continue to push resources, addressing issues to help you reflect and assist in your own self-growth whether it's in celebration of Black History Month, Women's History Month, or a day that ends in y! Some are quick reads or listens and others can be viewed at your convenience.

As you view the resources, reflect and answer "How do these make you feel? Why do you think you feel this way?"
