Loss and Grief in the Black Community
As we observe Black History Month, we would like take this opportunity to share a wide variety of resources with the goal of building bridges and enhancing our efforts to better serve the diverse Montgomery County community. The resources below offer important perspectives and unique cultural considerations about grief in the Black community. These voices and resources can help move us closer to a deeper understanding and more compassionate support of our Black family members, friends and neighbors.
