In the age of information, we believe that ignorance is a choice. And so, because we believe that Black History Month isn’t enough to educate ourselves – we’ve collaborated with SISU, a specialist diversity & inclusion consultancy to bring you this blog.

We hope that through this collection of resources, you’ll (and we’ll!) have the opportunity to learn more about the contributions of Black people to our country’s history, not just for the month of October.
