2023 Black History Month- How will you celebrate and reflect?

Filed in news by on February 1, 2023


Each year the Association for the study of African American Life and History,(ASALH), chooses the theme for Black History Month.

The theme for 2023- Black Resistance

When Carter G. Woodson established Negro History week in 1926, he realized the importance of providing a theme to focus the attention of the public. The intention has never been to dictate or limit the exploration of the Black experience but to bring to the public’s attention important developments that merit emphasis.

For those interested in the study of identity and ideology, an exploration of ASALH’s Black History themes is itself instructive. Over the years, the themes reflect changes in how people of African descent in the United States have viewed themselves, the influence of social movements on racial ideologies, and the aspirations of the black community.

The changes notwithstanding, the list reveals an overarching continuity in ASALH–our dedication to exploring historical issues of importance to people of African descent and race relations in America.

2023 National Theme: Black Resistance

“The Black History Month Committee appreciates the opportunity and responsibility to extend our reach, while welcoming back guests over the past 17 years. A more objective historical education for all, is as important as providing it with thoughtfulness, fairness, and integrity. Sharing the whole experience, rather than simply what is comfortable, helps to respect the point of view of those who lived and died from this past and present existence.

Resistance is defined as: “the refusal to accept or comply with something; the attempt to prevent something by action or argument”
