Black History Month Reflections

During Black History month, we hope you have time to reflect on the many historical sacrifices and important contributions of Black Americans to our American way of life. We do this in the spirit of sharing:

  • To build communities,
  • To strengthen relationships,
  • To critically look at and transform knowledge and its artifacts in how they are applied to Black Americans,
  • To cultivate a culture of caring through deep listening to our patients and colleagues,
  • To use history to imagine new ways of sharing in the opportunities and promises of discovery.

Please see below for Black History Month events/activities being held at Washington University and in the St. Louis community.  We also provide links for reading and viewing to guide your reflection beyond Black History Month.
