Over the years, YWCA organizations across the country have honored Black History Month through various topics, commemorating African American leaders who have shaped history, and amplified Black voices advocating through activism. This year, YWCA Utah is joining others in the US to highlight The Unsung Legacy of Black Feminism: From Jane Crow to Intersectionality. Follow us on social media as we highlight Black Feminists that deserve the recognition.
This time is also for getting involved on an individual level, so we’ve gathered some local events and virtual screenings to help bridge the gap for our local community in Utah. Check out the below and stay tuned for more this month.
