ASALH WILL HOLD INNOVATIVE VIRTUAL PROGRAMMING IN THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY CELEBRATING THE 2023 BLACK HISTORY THEME: BLACK RESISTANCE
This year’s festival will celebrate the theme of Black Resistance in the past present AND FUTURE STARTING FEBRUARY 1st 2023.
During these uncertain times in which the very nature of what the Association does—the teaching of areas of Black History which has been legally banned in seven U.S. states as “history that makes people uncomfortable” ASALH presents it’s annual month-long Black History Month Festival.
African Americans have resisted historic and ongoing oppression, in all forms, especially the racial terrorism of lynching, racial pogroms, and police killings since our arrival upon these shores. These efforts have been to advocate for a dignified self-determined life in a just democratic society in the United States and beyond the United States political jurisdiction.
