The month offers a chance to recognize the contributions made by Black Individuals in a variety of sectors, including the arts, sciences, sports, politics, and civil rights. It demonstrates their resilience and determination in the face of adversity. Some of the Inspiring Black Heroes that we recognize as an organization:
