To commemorate and celebrate the contributions to our nation made by people of African descent, American historian Carter G. Woodson established Black History Week. First celebrated in 1926, the week was expanded into Black History Month in 1976 as part of the nation’s bicentennial. Each year, the U.S. President proclaims February as National African American History Month. Heart disease, cancer, and stroke are the leading causes of death for African Americans. Additionally, Police brutality and Censorship in education are stress-inducing. Let’s Learn about these conditions and what you can do for your total health.

Blafrokan Reflections:

  • While Black History Week was created in the United States, should Black History Month focus on the African experience in the U.S.and beyond its borders? Would not it encourage Africans abroad to introspect and learn beyond colonial history?
  • How do we incorporate Black Health into Black History Month?
  • What does Black History Month mean to you?
  • Should Black History be a focused campaign for racial justice issues? ie. Reparations for enslavement, reparations for colonization, voting rights advocacy etc.?
  • When we abdicate our responsibility to teach our children Black History, they may become “successful” glorified servants. How will you implement teaching Black History in our children’s daily lives to empower their self concept and personal development?
  • Children’s educational rights are being eroded across the country. What political advocacy are you doing on behalf of our children to ensure Civil Rights are strengthened across the nation?
