Boston Public School Equity Warrior Series Celebrating the Black History Month 2023 The BPS Equity Warrior Series (EWS) features people of African descent who have made significant contributions to Boston, the nation, and the world, and to Black history and culture. Each day in February, EWS will bring attention to a quote from a current or historical figure who has contributed to and laid the foundation for disrupting and dismantling anti-Black racism, colonialism, and exploitation, while simultaneously developing and contributing to a rich tapestry of arts, scholarship, politics, and social justice movements. EWS seeks to build a bridge between the tireless efforts of our Black ancestors and our present-day responsibility to be equity warriors in the battle to eliminate systemic racism.
