The 2022 Black History Month theme, as defined by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, the founders of Black History Month, is BLACK HEALTH AND WELLNESS. This theme acknowledges the legacy of not only Black scholars and medical practitioners in Western medicine, but also other ways of knowing (e.g. birth workers, doulas, midwives, naturopaths, herbalists, etc.) through the African Diaspora. The 2022 theme considers activities, rituals and initiatives that Black Communities have do to be well.
