The Association for the Study of African American Life and History hosts its second annual virtual Black History Month Festival. The opening session will describe the month-long celebration of the 2022 Black History theme, Black Health and Wellness, and will invite viewers to join with ASALH in acknowledging the legacy of Black scholars and medical practitioners in Western medicine, and other ways of knowing throughout the African Diaspora. The opening will highlight this year’s marquee event which features a critical analysis of the history of medicine and the enduring impact of medical practices and policies on Black health and wellbeing. The event will be held in two parts to survey significant events in medical practice and to illuminate contemporary issues related to mental health and physical wellbeing among former National Football League players.
