The following links allow access to articles and videos that provide additional insight into the struggles African Americans experience in our country.  In honor of Black History month, as well as the conversations of the summer of 2020, we decided to make these resources available for those who are interested.  The links are listed according to various periods of history.  Hopefully, exploring these resources will lead to an even deeper understanding.
