The Society of the Sacred Heart JPIC International Office has put together a set of reflection resources for Pentecost 2020. In the midst of so much uncertainty, change, and chaos, these resources invite us to think of one other, to transform our perspectives and behavior, to be creative, and not to let this opportunity for transformation pass us by.

Black History Month Selected Resources

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to Black History.

With the rich and diverse cultures, traditions and histories of Native people, this month acknowledges the contributions that continue to be made by Native peoples. It is also an opportunity to educate ourselves on the oppression of native tribes and the systematic plundering of their lands and culture since the first settlers arrived on the continent.
