22 Feb Celebrating Black History Month (4 of 4)

The New York Times recently wrote an article titled, "Honor and Learn This Black History Month." Data2insight found this article to be enlightening and encouraging.  We share a snippet from the article below and hope you will click here to read it in its entirety! More than ever, this month is a welcome time for the education and celebration of Black American culture. It’s not an understatement to describe the events of the past year as historic, and particularly for Black Americans. The nation elected its first Black vice president, a woman and a graduate of a historically Black university, and Georgia send its first Black senator to the Capitol. (Both of these realities were possible through the tireless organizing efforts of women like Stacey Abrams of Fair Fight and LaTosha Brown of Black Voters Matter.) This period also had Black Americans experiencing disproportionate deaths and job losses from Covid-19, police brutality and myriad race-fueled attacks. The killing of George Floyd, a Black man in police custody, ushered in a period of collective reckoning — one that prompted widespread protests, a push for racial justice and a re-examination of the education system’s failure to teach the accurate history of Black and Indigenous people. As Black History Month kicks off, there may not be a physical coming together, but there are numerous cultural events in which to take part.

They encourage proposals from scholars working across a variety of temporal, geographical, thematic, and topical areas in Black history, life and culture. They seek to foster a space of inclusion in the ASALH program and encourage submissions from anyone interested in presenting including: historians, students, new professionals, first-time presenters, activists, and practitioners from allied professions.

08 Feb Celebrating Black History Month (2 of 4)

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating Black history. (source) Since 1976, every American president has designated February as Black History Month and endorsed a specific theme.  The Black History Month 2021 theme, “Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity” explores the African diaspora, and the spread of Black families across the United States. (source) The National Archives Museum Online will be holding an online panel discussion about this year's theme.  To learn more about this event and how you can register, please click here.
