The theme for 2023’s Black History Month is Black Resistance. According to the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, “African Americans have resisted historic and ongoing oppression, in all forms, especially the racial terrorism of lynching, racial pogroms, and police killings since our arrival upon these shores.” Such resistance comes and has come in many forms over the years from art and music to education and business creation to large group protests and individuals taking a knee, and much more.
