HISD celebrates Black History Month

February marks the 96th year of the official celebration of Black History Month, a time to pay tribute to the immense contributions of generations of African Americans.

The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH)—the organization responsible for the launch of Black History Month in 1926—has set the theme for this year as “Black Health and Wellness.”

It is fitting that this year focuses on health, as we are still in the midst of a global pandemic—one that disproportionately impacts people of color.

HISD remains committed to ensuring the health and safety of its students and staff.

All month long, schools across the district will celebrate with a wide variety of events, programs, and curriculum.
