Living and working cross-culturally, it’s vital to listen and learn from a variety of voices. February is Black History Month and specifically emphasizes the contributions of African American innovators, writers, activists, and more to society.
To celebrate Black History Month here on the blog, we thought we’d highlight a few (modern day) African American bloggers to add to your online reading!
