Every February we honor the contributions of Black Americans who have helped shape our nation. Black History Month is an opportunity to understand Black histories, going beyond stories of racism and slavery to spotlight Black achievement.

Here at DCDL, Black History Month is also an opportunity to celebrate Black Deaf Americans and their contributions to the Deaf Community.
