Celebrate Black History Month with YWCA National Capital Area!

Categories: News

It’s Black History Month and we will be celebrating and honoring Black history all month long. As we enter this month, we call on you to reflect on how Black people have led and continue to drive movements for equality, often at great peril and with little recognition.

We call on you to uplift the joy of Black people and spend some time with us this month as we activate and educate.

Black History Month Social Media

Racial Justice and uplifting Black people is at the heart of our mission, which guides all our programs and services we offer here at YWCA National Capital Area. This month on social media, we will celebrate the beauty of Blackness and honor the legacy of Black culture and power in our country.

Follow along over the next few weeks as we have important conversations, share information, and amplify some incredible Black individuals, organizations, and businesses. Use the hashtag #YWCABlackHistoryMonth to stay up to date!
