The last day of February might mark the end of Black History Month, but at Dome, it is not where the conversation stops. We are committing to bringing continued awareness, providing educational resources, and giving back to the organizations that are making a difference. Throughout Black History Month, we celebrated by bringing attention to influential Black figures who have made a mark on our industry’s history.

Click on the highlights below to learn more about these outstanding architects, engineers, and activists who have inspired and paved the way for future generations. Throughout the year, we will continue to unmask the lives and work of Black leaders in our industry to unveil further how black creatives and visionaries have helped shape our industry.

In addition, through the work of the Dome Construction Foundation and our employees, we will continue supporting organizations and programs that serve the underprivileged and underrepresented in our communities. For more information on the Dome Construction Foundation, check out our Foundations Page.

We invite you to explore more resources that provide tools and guidance to empower you to explore and learn about African American history in our country.
