Black History: Past, Present, and Future - We make the world more aware of, more connected to, and more invested in the African American and the African diaspora experience by creating opportunities for everyone to experience our history through culture, scholarship, technology, and research.
To ignite conversations around the African and African American experience that fill new books, films, minds, artistic expressions, music, podcasts, blogs, and social interaction across diverse populations. To rally against the dilution of our heritage and legacy that has been underrepresented in mainstream history, literature, and media. To ensure that libraries, museums, schools, and media that participate in institutionalized bias do not ignore Black lives, and to provide support for scholastic study at the college level.
To provide the world with a new way of looking at Black History. To help people see that Black History is not just a part of American history, it is American history. To recognize, amplify and honor the contributions of Black Americans, lest we fail to honor America at all.
