He adds, "We are honored that Pride Action Tank, Equality Illinois, and DuSable Museum of African-American History, have joined us as sponsors for our Black History Month series. Bringing community together to gain insight on Black History through art, and the resulting conversations, will inspire all of us to take more action for equality."
