Black History Month: The Immigrant Impact
Black History is comprised of many stories. Countless perspectives and experiences remind us, we often under express the impact Black lives have on our society when we overgeneralize. Bonding over the similarities while appreciating and learning from the differences help us grow with compassion, strength, understanding, problem solving, and in love. This month, Zebra Strategies would like to explore the nuances of Black duplicity and individuality by honoring the Black Immigrant experience.
