Black History Month - February Volunteer Opportunities
Black History Month, also known as African-American History Month in America, is an annual observance in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom for remembrance of important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. It is celebrated annually in the United States and Canada in February and the United Kingdom in October. This is a great time to join the country in recognizing the rich historical legacy and countless contributions of African American throughout the history of the U.S.
Below are some ideas in supporting education:
1. Coordinate a group of employees and participants to offer help at your local cultural museum. You can visit the museum’s website and look for any volunteer request or opportunities.
2. Volunteer to host a free community showing of “Red Tails,” a fictionalized film that portrays the Tuskegee Airmen and all African American Army Air Force crew.
