This month, I am especially excited to learn more about the African-Americans who have made our country great. In my search for knowledge, I am coming across some great resources that I’d like to share with you!

(This is the seventeenth in a series of posts devoted to sharing the rich history of African-Americans. To see more posts in this series, click here.)

With all the marching going on lately, I have been reminded that last summer I had the amazing opportunity to see Representative John Lewis speak at the Museum of African Diaspora (MoAD). He was there to promote a graphic novel about his life titled March. His speech was nothing short of inspiring.

The days ahead may often seem dark at times. When you are feeling despair about the road ahead, get inspired by the words and life of Congressman John Lewis.


What are you doing to stand up to hate and bigotry? How are you getting into #goodtrouble
