The first Black history month was celebrated in 1970. Originally focused on black folx and the ways that they could honor and celebrate their own legacy, it has become a mainstay of our calendar and folx of all races now take time to acknowledge the contributions that black folx have made.

But for white people, in addition to celebrating Black History month, we are called to honor black history. This service will examine what it means for us as white people to honor black history and to base our actions and living on the ways that we honor black history – not only in February but year round.
