February is Black History Month

This month, we link to resources, education, and explore local events, concerts and more celebrating Black History Month.

Each February, we take the time to celebrate the resilience of black Americans and Boston residents during Black History Month.   Sharing the stories, struggles and accomplishments of African Americans and other individuals of African descent is important and resonant, in reflecting on past injustices, present inequities, and present and future victories. Reading books of lived experiences and histories, or perhaps attending a community event or performance, are strong ways of engaging with this history.   Listed below are our favorite up to date events, reading lists, resource lists and more:

  • GLAD offers this extensive list of LGBT online and in person support networks and resources for gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer people of color.
  • Black Mental Health Alliance is a mental health advocacy service for people of color. Their website includes a link offering to assist in reaching out for local referrals to those seeking mental health services,
  • Innopsych is a database designed to help those who are searching for mental health counselors of color. 

As always, know you can reach out to us at the Employee Assistance Program for confidential counseling support, referrals and resources.  Have a wonderful month, stay warm!
