Last month was Black History Month. This is a dedicated time in the United States where we recognize and celebrate the Black Community. Having this month especially devoted to elevating Black voices is wonderful, but this something that must always be happening. Celebrating Black lives does not begin and end in February each year.

To keep the celebration going, our GRIT team has shared a number of resources and links from Black creators below. Here, you will find podcasts, tedtalks, movies, artwork, articles etc that have been so valuable to us. Enjoy!
