Black History Month at Synovus

There is much to learn and celebrate about Black history. So much so, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASAALH) determines an annual theme for Black History Month to help focus attention, guide conversation, and inspire. This year, they are highlighting the contributions of Black Americans to the arts, and an exploration of Black creative expression.

Creativity is everywhere. The ability to express ourselves in so many different mediums makes our world a brighter and better place. That’s why, this Black History Month, we’re excited to join the ASAALH and recognize our artistically talented team members.
