Celebrating Black History Month

Black History Month

Throughout the month, Stradley Ronon’s Black and African American Engagement Group will host several events to inform about and uplift Black and African American culture. From a viewing and discussion of the documentary “Black Renaissance: The Art and Soul of Our Stories,” to a Black business crawl across our firm’s offices, to a firm-hosted CLE presentation on the C.R.O.W.N. Act. Join us in this effort to uplift and honor Black and African American culture and history.
