Oak Hill Collaborative and Black History Month Events for 2022

When we’re not helping close the digital divide, having fun down in our Makerspace, or trying our best to get you the cheapest price on internet we can, Oak Hill Collaborative is known as a space for community engagement. This month is very important to us because not only are we working diligently to provide you with a wonderful event, but so are some of our tenants partner organizations. The best part?
