On the Agenda: Celebrating Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, I took part in a special multimedia project with HuffPost Black Voices in which they highlighted influencers and change-agents who are making history today. The series, entitled “We Built This,” celebrates the many ways black people across generations, industries, and experiences have not only excelled but opened doors for current generations and those to come.I was honored to be one of 30 black history–makers for this project. Take a look at my piece here and let me know what you think!
