Black Voices that Inspire Us
In honor of Black History Month, this collection of journals celebrates Black authors who use their voices to inspire, engage, and empower. These authors, amongst countless others, have used their words to raise up the voices of the African American community. Their words remind us that we also hold the power to enact change through our writing and our stories.
