The Ackerman Institute for the Family celebrates Black History Month. We honor the countless contributions people of African decent have made towards civil rights and social justice throughout history. The Institute strives on being a community of inclusion and one that celebrates diversity as a cornerstone to family health. We remember and celebrate those in the African-American mental health community who envision equality and justice for all families.
