Black History Month 2022

The theme for this year's Black History month is

Black Health and Wellness

as stated by the founders of Black History Month, the ASALH (Association for the Study of African American Life and History).

"The theme for 2022 focuses on the importance of Black Health and Wellness. This theme acknowledges the legacy of not only Black scholars and medical practitioners in Western medicine, but also other ways of knowing (e.g., birthworkers, doulas, midwives, naturopaths, herbalists, etc.) throughout the African Diaspora. The 2022 theme considers activities, rituals and initiatives that Black communities have done to be well."
