Look Back on Black History Month 2022

The Black History Month 2022 theme, “Black Health and Wellness,” explores the legacy of not only Black scholars and medical practitioners in Western medicine, but also other ways of knowing (e.g., birthworkers, doulas, midwives, naturopaths, herbalists, etc.) throughout the African Diaspora.

 

The 2022 theme considers activities, rituals and initiatives that Black communities have done to be well.

    On These Grounds: Screening and Panel

    About the Film

    The presence of police in public schools has become an issue nationwide. A documentary film called “On These Grounds” addresses this issue in the context of an incident in a South Carolina high school. That case received national attention when a video of a police officer pulling a Black teenager from her school desk and throwing her across the floor went viral.
     
     
    ABC will be kicking off Black History Month by screening the film at the Bear Tooth Theater on February 7, 2022.
     
    Filmmakers and film participants will be joining us in a panel Community Conversation on February 6, 2022.
