Uplift and Amplify the Black Community 365 Days A Year

The month of February is dedicated to celebrating Black History, but year-round we should uplift and amplify the Black community. Here at the Department of Public Policy (DPP) we dedicate ourselves to learning about Black history, shopping at Black owned businesses and supporting Black creators. Below are just some of the resources shared by our community. Have more resources to share? Email us at dpp@uconn.edu to expand this working document.
