What is Black Women’s History Month?

April marks Black Women's History Month, a dedicated time to uplift and amplify the remarkable contributions of Black women across generations. This month holds particular significance as it coincides with the founding of pivotal organizations led by Black women, symbolizing a legacy of empowerment and advocacy.

Facing Challenges, Forging Progress

Black women have faced a unique set of obstacles throughout American history.  They have battled against racism and sexism, often simultaneously.  Despite these challenges, Black women have consistently risen above, becoming leaders, innovators, and role models for future generations.

Breaking Ground in Various Fields

Black women have made significant strides in a wide range of fields.  Here are just a few examples:

  • Science and Technology: Dr. Katherine Johnson, a mathematician, played a pivotal role in NASA's early space missions.

  • Education: Mary McLeod Bethune, an educator and activist, founded Bethune-Cookman University, a historically Black college and university (HBCU).

  • The Arts: Maya Angelou, a poet and author, captivated audiences with her powerful writing and storytelling.

Advocates for Change

Black women have consistently stood at the vanguard of social progress. Figures like Harriet Tubman, a conductor on the Underground Railroad, and Rosa Parks, who refused to give up her seat on a bus,  risked their lives to fight for equality.

Continuing the Legacy

Black women continue to make history today.  From CEOs and politicians to scientists and artists, they shape the world in countless ways.  April serves as a powerful reminder of their enduring strength and resilience.
