HE RESTORES MY SOUL … Psalm 23:3

Black History Month 2022

The theme for Black History Month 2022 is Restoration: Healing. Renewal. Refreshment.  It comes from the familiar Psalm 23, 3a: “…he restores my soul.”

During this month, we are invited to times of refreshment in God’s word and our world. We take this opportunity for all of us to learn about and celebrate the contributions of Black Americans to our society, their legacy of resilience, and their heritage of faith and hope. These resources listed are provided as a supplement for planning your BHM 2022 events.

PROGRAM IDEAS

Celebrating with the Arts

This might be one of the most creative times of the year when people come together to celebrate Black History through song, dance, art, ethnic foods, poetry, storytelling and more! These artistic expressions can be held at one event or spaced throughout the month

Movie & Discussion

Host a movie night followed by discussion. Here are just a few suggestions:

Best of Enemies (drama, 2019) I Am Bolt (documentary/Sport 2016), Hidden Figures (biographical drama, 2016), Queen of Katwe (drama/sport 2016), Just Mercy (drama/legal drama 2019), Selma (drama/historical drama 2014), 12 Years A Slave (drama/history, 2013), Harriet ( drama/history 2019), Great Debaters (drama/historical film 2007), Red Tails (history/drama/war 2012) Discuss how African Americans have faced challenges and overcome difficulties, as well as made significant contributions to society, past and present. Viewing before hand is recommended as some scenes may be difficult for sensitive viewers.

Panel Discussion

Have a panel discussion. Invite speakers who are able to discuss a topic that is relevant to the community from different perspectives. Include those who can provide context and history, as well as those who can  show how the topic impacts the community today. Have interactive questions from the audience.
