Happy Black History Month!


Black History Month: A Reason for Everyone to Celebrate!

Black History Month is a chance to celebrate the power and contributions of our Black communities—yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Join us in coming together in joy and pride this Black History Month, as we cheer for the richness and diversity of Black communities across the U.S.

The theme for this year's Black History Month is African Americans and the Arts. We're excited to feature Black art in many of our branches this month, and we'll be sharing a blog post later this month about the history of Black art of all kinds.

Join Us in Celebrating

Each of our branches will be celebrating in a variety of ways, from displaying art from local Black artists to connecting with local partners to serving food and other goodies in the branch. Stop by your local branch this month to join in on the celebrations!  

Plus, we have a limited number of "Black Art Matters" magnets available for members! Come by your local branch and pick yours up. And as always, keep an eye on our social media feeds for plenty of fun facts, photos and bits of history.

We look forward to celebrating with you! From all of us at Self-Help, happy Black History Month.
