Black Futures Month

Black Futures Month is a monthlong observance devoted to celebrating, envisioning, and working toward positive futures for Black people. Most of those who observe Black Futures Month treat it as a forward-looking complement to Black History Month, which is much more widely observed. Others promote Black Futures Month as a rebranding or replacement of Black History Month (in some cases due to a belief that Black History Month is too focused on negative events of the past). Critics of treating the month in this way often state that doing so can have the effect of ignoring or erasing both negative and positive events in Black history. Observance of Black Futures Month involves events that focus on positive contributions and influence of Black people in the present world and on efforts and visions for a more just and equitable society for Black people. Black Futures Month especially emphasizes artistic expressions and is often associated with Afrofuturism.
