Black History Month

Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of Black people in U.S. history. For February, we bring attention to both the challenges Black families face in child welfare, as well as their strength and resilience. Learn more, including Florida-specific stats, in the following infographic. Follow our social media pages for research and resources posted throughout the month.
