2018’s theme is African Americans in Times of War. “Times of war inevitably provide the framework for many stories related to African American soldiers, veterans and civilians,” said Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH)’s National President Dr. Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham. “This year’s Black History Month theme is filled with paradoxes of valor and defeat, of civil rights opportunities and setbacks, of struggles abroad and at home, and of catastrophic loss of life and the righteous hope for peace.
