During the month of February, we want to highlight books, local events, and virtual resources celebrating Black History Month.
The Town of Mansfield is committed to celebrating Black History Month by sharing some opportunities from our community and the surrounding area to learn more about our country’s black history through books, events, and resources that present the struggles and accomplishments of Black Americans and other individuals of African descent. As a community we recognize the importance of this month-long event which presents a good opportunity for people of all backgrounds to broaden our understanding in order to address inequity. Listed below are a few readings, resources, and event calendars. We encourage you to check them out:
