It’s 2022 Black History Month!

The theme for 2022 is ‘Black Health and Wellness’, recognising the achievements of Black health and wellness practitioners. 

Black History Month is here! It is celebrated from Friday the 1 October to Sunday the 31 October, 2022.

The theme this year for 2022 is ‘Black Health and Wellness’, recognising the achievements of Black health and wellness practitioners. 

Black History Month is one of the most important celebrations of the year. It honours the history of Black communities and recognises the great achievements made by Black thought leaders who have shaped life as we know it.   

Black History Month is an internationally recognised celebration of just that – Black history. By honouring the struggles faced by not just the African American community, but Black people as a whole, the month strives for equality and inclusion.
