"As we celebrate Black History Month, I am reminded of one of the earliest lessons my parents and grandparents taught me:  the arts help root us in the rich soil that is our heritage, so that we can stand confident in our ability to help shape our world.

“Black history is American history. During Black History Month, we look forward to showcasing Black artists who have created beautiful and impactful art that helps us see our common humanity and inspires us to create a better world." — NEA Chair Maria Rosario Jackson
