Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session

To: All Senate members
Subject: African American History Month
In the near future, we plan to introduce a resolution honoring February 2024 as African American History Month.

Black history is American history. Every February, we come together to honor the history, struggles, and triumphs of Black America and the contributions Black Americans have made to American society. For hundreds of years, Black Americans have been an essential part of our nation’s fabric, pushing and pulling us towards the better angels of our nature. Black History Month is a celebration of Black people and Black accomplishments, where we’ve been and how far we’ve come.

Each year, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) establishes a theme surrounding Black History Month and its dedication. This year’s theme is “African Americans and the Arts.” With this theme, we honor the rich tapestry that makes up Black culture and the integral part it plays in American life.

Please join us in sponsoring this important resolution.
