Black History - More Than Just a Month!

Black History Month
  • Detroit Public Schools Community District is celebrating the amazing history and contributions of African Americans and people of African descent throughout the month of February and beyond. We will shine a spotlight on Black and African American contributions to the mental health movement because they are oftentimes overlooked. Without recognizing the lack of representation of Black and African American people in the mental health movement, we do a disservice and continue to inflict harm. Learning about the history of systemic racism during Black History Month and all year illustrates how it harms Black communities in the United States and around the world is key for creating a mentally healthier world. Join us as we explore the amazing history and contributions of African Americans and people of African descent through The Hub and web postings, focused curriculum, and activities in and around our community. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Here you will find a number of resources to educate, elevate, and celebrate Black excellence in our world! Below are some ways you can celebrate Black History and recognize African American Heritage this month.
