Celebrate Black Health & Wellness — Black History Month 2022

The Association for the Study of African American Life and History

2022 Black History Theme -- Black Health and Wellness

 

The theme for 2022 focuses on the importance of Black Health and Wellness. This theme acknowledges the legacy of not only Black scholars and medical practitioners in Western medicine, but also other ways of knowing (e.g., birthworkers, doulas, midwives, naturopaths, herbalists, etc.) throughout the African Diaspora. The 2022 theme considers activities, rituals and initiatives that Black communities have done to be well.

In conjunction with the Woods Hole Black History Month Committee, Eight Cousins has created this list of books pertaining to Black Health and Wellness.

This list is intended as a resource, and we appreciate that you will want to support Black-owned bookstores and businesses such as Footprints Books and Cafe.
