In an effort to amplify heritage months and honor different cultures all year long, we’re offering the “More Than A Month Film Series.” In each newsletter cycle, we’ll celebrate a different culture or identity with documentaries from our Kanopy collection. By sharing the stories, celebrating the contributions and acknowledging barriers, we will create opportunities to learn throughout the year. We hope you’ll join us.
