Each year, October is recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While breast cancer affects women of all ethnicities, unfortunately it is now more fatal for black women.

August is National Black Business Month
Did you know that this month is National Black Business Month? It's the perfect time to recognize Black-owned businesses across the country and highlight their important role in the community and the national economy.
Black business owners account for about 10% of U.S. businesses and about 30% of all minority-owned businesses. Black Business Month is an opportunity to focus on black-owned businesses and help support and grow their representation in the nation's commercial landscape. If you are wondering how to contribute to it, you can start by supporting and encouraging black-owned businesses in your community.
National Black Family Month
It’s Black Family Month! Established in 2006, Black Family Month celebrates families and their enrichment through education, health and self-improvement. Shaun McLaughlin founded this celebration after observing how families spent more time together in July attending family-related events.
We know it can be difficult to reconnect with the family sometimes, but studies show that spending time with family can improve communication, promote respect and mutual appreciation, and build confidence and self-esteem.
If you are looking for ideas on how to reconnect and reignite your connection with your immediate and extended family, here are a few activities that you can do together to celebrate Black Family Month:
- Cooking special family recipes together
- Have a family movie night
- Have a family game night
- Go on a family trip
- Start a family group chat
Celebrate your family, and create memories that last a lifetime
