An ever-expanding guide dedicated to Black History Month

Black History Month 2023: Black Resistance

The 2023 theme assigned by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH®) is Black Resistance.

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.
