Recognizing Black History Month

Black History Month, also known as African American History Month, serves as an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Since 1976, every American president has designated February as Black History Month and endorsed a specific theme. This year’s theme is Black Health and Wellness.

Washington REALTORS will be presenting two webinars this year for Black History Month. See below to learn more and register:
