Celebrating Success!

The 2022 theme is focused on Black Health and Wellness.
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. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month.
 
 
We pause each year to commemorate and encourage the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history.
 
Since 1987, March has been designated as National Women's History Month, a time to pay tribute to the generations of women who changed the face of society through courage and activism. The National Women's History Alliance designates a yearly theme for Women's History Month.
 
The theme for 2022 is Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.
This theme is both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.
