If you are interested in partnering with ASALH, please contact us. You may read about some of the work that ASALH is currently undertaking with its partners below.
ASALH has been approved to partner with the NPS African American Civil Rights Network as of April 15, 2022.
The mission of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History is to promote, research, preserve, interpret and disseminate information about Black life, history and culture to the global community. By promoting the study, research and teaching of the history and culture of African Americans, the organization and its members were addressing civil rights by challenging the lies, myths and distorted history that supported racial discrimination, segregation, and violence against African Americans. Countering and challenging the racist and so-called “intellectual” foundation of white supremacy in the United States was an awesome task. But through its conferences, publications, exhibitions, and promotion of a national Negro History Week, starting in 1926, and Black History Month since 1976, ASALH has met the challenge for over 100 years.
Kiamsha is a youth group based in Prince George’s County, Maryland that has partnered with ASALH on numerous occasions. Kiamsha facilitates the annual Youth Day, which occurs during the yearly ASALH National convention. This celebration reaches out to local youth through events such as the poetry slam, and assemblies at local schools.
