While the lives, stories, histories, and experiences of Black peoples can be featured throughout the year, February provides a unique opportunity to offer a particular focus on the stories and histories of people of African descent in church and society. It can be a time to focus on anti-Black racism.
This year, there are several resources available for learning and engaging.
United Church Resources
From the United Church, there are a variety of resources that can be explored:
New blogs, that will continue to be featured on the United Church website,
A free one-hour webinar on February 24, focused on “Mental Health and the Black Experience”. The webinar is geared towards all individuals, including employees and people leaders, and will provide an understanding of the impacts of mental health in the Black community.
We hope that you will take some time to explore these, and other resources, to engage in Black History Month!
