Black history is made every day, and we all should remember that year-round.
To honor Black history means to create opportunities for it to continue to be made. And that goes far beyond the 28 days of February.
As one of the pinnacles of African American history, NAACP is committed to ensuring that the legacy of the Black community in this country continues to thrive.
So, no matter how many roadblocks we face, we will continue to advocate for voting rights legislation. We will continue to clear the path to quality education by awarding Black students with scholarships for college through our N-SPIRE program. We will continue to create opportunities for growth and scalability for Black entrepreneurs by providing funding, grants, and resources through our Black-Owned Business Resource Center on Hello Alice.
And come February 25, 2023 at 8 pm ET/7pm CST, we will celebrate Black excellence at the highest level at the 54th NAACP Image Awards via BET.
