Ten Ways to Mark Black History Month

10 Ways To Mark Black History Month

We have lots of content planned for Black History Month 2021, many of which we’ll collect in a toolkit for partners to use. (Check back as we add more to it through the month of February.) We thought we’d also pass along some suggestions:

  1. Film Watch Party & Discussion – Watch Good Trouble, Becoming, or another film.
  2. Host a Livingroom Conversation on Race & America.
  3. Reach out to faculty connections to request an African-American Studies Professor to host a presentation.
  4. Reach out to expert in race relations such as Ibram X. Kendi to host a virtual dialogue.
  5. Host a virtual poetry slam where Fellows read their favorite black poets.
  6. Host a virtual tour of a museum, such as the African-American Museum in Philadelphia, the New York Public Library’s Digital Schomburg, or the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African-American History & Culture.
  7. Host a virtual art exhibit featuring black artists’ work.
  8. Host a poster contest with the Fellows to celebrate Black History Month/ Civil Rights Movement/ Black Lives Matter Movement.
  9. Have students create Step-routine videos to share on social media.
  10. Host a virtual mock Supreme Court trial on cases affecting Black rights.

If you have suggestions to add to this list, let us know, and we’ll be happy to pass them on.
