Hello Beloved Community,
We are ready to celebrate 2022 Black History Month! I hope each and every one of you will be a part of the four most interesting and engaging virtual events. The year’s national BHM theme is Health and Wellness throughout the African Diaspora. The 2022 theme considers activities, rituals, and initiatives that Black communities have practiced in an effort to maintain health and well being. It also takes a look at how the American healthcare system has often under served the African American.
The the kick off event, “Connecting the Past to the Present” and “Hidden Figures from Black History.” will run through the month of February at two locations, Downtown Gallery 456 (Broadway) and Chelsea Public Library. The vast collection of photos is an eye opener to the many contributions of Blacks who remained mostly unknown by the general public.These individuals made tremendous contribution to America and deserve to be remembered. Please make it a point to visit both displays.
The remaining featured Calendar of Events (please refer to attachment) throughout the month will be Engaging, Educational, and Enriching. Our GRAND FINALE is always the closest celebration to our heart, “Chelsea Trailblazer” Recognition! We will roll out the Red Carpet in honoring six phenomenal men and women “hidden figures” who continue to lead, committed to community wellness and creating effective solutions for the betterment of our whole community. We will celebrate them as one!
So, mark the dates on your calendar and SHARE the events with your friends, family, and coworkers. The Zoom Link (same for all events) is included at the top of the calendar page below. There is also a QR code you may access as a direct link into events on the calendar. (See attachment)
