The City is honoring and celebrating Black History throughout the month of February. The 2022 national theme is “Black Health and Wellness.” This theme considers activities, rituals, and initiatives that Black communities have participated in to be healthy and well. Black health and wellness not only includes one’s physical body but also emotional and mental health. 

Review our website to learn more about the stories, challenges, and accomplishments of Black Americans and other individuals of African descent. The webpage highlights include opportunities to:

  • Receive a free book by joining the Library’s Reading Challenge anytime throughout the month
  • Review Library staff’s booklist of recommended works on the black experience
  • Explore the free, online, searchable Smithsonian National Museum with the Smithsonian of African American History and Culture
  • Learn about Black Health's promotion of health and prevention of diseases from the National Black Leadership Commission on Health
