Every February, we honor the contributions, recognize the adversities, and celebrate the rich cultural heritage of African American people in the United States. This years national theme is: African Americans and the Arts.

Right now in the United States, we see extremists banning books and censoring curriculum. Many of these attempts are directed at African American studies and Black history.

CFT will be honoring Black History Month by sharing content and curriculum that connects the past with the work for equality that continues today.

Follow us on Instagram and Meta (Facebook) to follow along and share.
