ASAALH is the oldest historical society established for the promotion of African American history, and is the organization that first organized Black History Month. They set the annual theme, which for 2022 is “Black Health and Wellness.” It explores "the legacy of not only Black scholars and medical practitioners in Western medicine, but also other ways of knowing (e.g., birthworkers, doulas, midwives, naturopaths, herbalists, etc.) throughout the African Diaspora. The 2022 theme considers activities, rituals and initiatives that Black communities have done to be well."
