Every February, we celebrate the collective work done by Black people worldwide to build a future in which we are all free and loved. Black Futures Month is a forward-facing observation of Blackness in February: a time for us to celebrate radical Black history, to build upon what we’ve done in the past, and to dream of a world in which all Black people are free and can thrive.
This Black Futures Month, we look back to the past to see how their lessons can guide us toward liberation in the future. Join us as we travel through the history of previous radical Black convenings and highlight ways the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) is carrying those traditions forward today!
We’ll be showcasing the stories of previous gatherings, outlining ways to get involved with M4BL, and more! In the mean time, take a moment to re-visit and enjoy our Black Love Cards!
M4BL is an abolitionist, Black queer feminist, anti-capitalist ecosystem of hundreds of organizations nurturing a broad political home where Black people can find an opportunity to learn, organize, and take action. For us, the future of the Black radical tradition requires an understanding of where we’ve come from, as well as a clear vision of the future. It’s going to take all of us to create a revolutionary transformation of the beliefs, norms, and systems that reject our humanity.
This February, join us in celebrating Black history, Black life, Black futures, and Black love.
