Blacked Out History

Blacked Out History Month is an effort to highlight individuals, moments, and important facts throughout history that were left out of our history classes but made a tremendous impact on the world that we live in today.

February is the one month out of the year dedicated to honoring and remembering Black history. As Dream Defenders, we revere this history and know that every day in our work we stand on the shoulders of giants.

We are also aware that there is no such thing as an isolated “Black history”.

Our struggle has been inspired by, linked to, and shaped by the struggles of many who also see their histories forgotten. For this reason, we dedicate every February to shining a light on our Blacked Out Histories.
