I'm sure you've seen tons of articles over the past few weeks with suggestions on how to make the most of your Black History Month.

Maybe you learned something about supporting Black-owned businesses, uncovering overlooked Black historical figures, or even getting involved with (or amplifying existing) social media challenges. I hope you took some of those suggestions and made this month count.

  3. Pay it forward
  4. Diversify your support
  5. See us as individuals
