Black History Month

As one small way of honoring Black History this month, we are celebrating Black athletes in sports and performing arts, highlighting the leadership that Black athletes have taken up in the fight against racism, and discussing the impact of systemic racism in public policies on the health of Black communities.

Throughout the month, we will be sharing more content on this page. Learn more about trailblazing athletes who rise up and make history among biases and racism on and off the field. And hear how the voices of so many Black athletes are bringing a new height of awareness to social justice and the fight for equality.
