Wright Museum Black History Month 2023

This observance event grew out of “Negro History Week,” established by historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans in 1926.Across the nation and around the world, Black History Month serves as a reminder of the resilience of generations of African Americans of all backgrounds who have fought for freedom and justice.

The Wright follows Black History Month themes chosen by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), founded by Woodson. This year’s theme is “Black Resistance.” Throughout the African American experience, resistance and resilience has taken many forms and the Charles H. Wright Museum is dedicated to exploring and celebrating the rich cultural legacy of those experiences.
