Black History Month 2021

A Legacy of Irresistible Black Futures

Black History Month

To honor Black history is to celebrate Black futures and the radical imaginings of our ancestors. Generations of Black freedom fighters have put forward liberatory political, social, and economic platforms, and Black artists have charted a future where Black people live abundant, healthy, safe, and joy-filled lives. Recognizing in 2021 an unprecedented opening to advance visionary, affirmative, Black-centered agendas, we recognize Black History Month by revisiting the “Agendas for Black Liberation” that have grounded and guided our work.

During Black History Month 2021, we will elevate the powerful history of agendas for Black liberation - domestically and globally. We will also call on you to deepen your engagement and strengthen our collective commitment to realizing Black futures as we build a liberated world.

Stay tuned and join us all month for discussions with activists and cultural workers, a film screening, and a Black Liberation Archive that will uplift the stories of those who inspired the Center for Constitutional Rights’ work along with our historic movement partners in the Black freedom struggle.
