The history of Hebrew SeniorLife began with responding to the unique needs of a minority community that had suffered from anti-Semitism and the traumas of war and immigration. This history informs our current commitment to serving communities in need, and welcoming people of all races, faiths, ethnic backgrounds, gender expression, and sexual orientations. In honor of Black History Month, we put together an infographic celebrating men and women of color in the often overlapping fields of art, politics, science, social justice, and sport, to name a few. We invite you to share the image with your social networks in recognition of their historic achievements. http://bit.ly/2ESFy0D
