Black Wellness Week

The History of Black Wellness Week

Black Wellness Week is a groundbreaking initiative that not only raises awareness on health and wellness activities in Black communities but also pays homage to the visionary work of Booker T. Washington. Inspired by Booker T. Washington's National Negro Health Week, which ran for 35 years and empowered thousands of Black community members through health-focused activities, Black Wellness Week carries forward this legacy of advocacy and awareness.

The inaugural Black Wellness Week, scheduled for observation from April 15th through April 19th, 2024, marks a historic moment in Washington State's Black history. The Governor's inaugural proclamation of Black Wellness Week in 2024 reaffirms the state's commitment to addressing the unique health challenges faced by the Black community. 

Black Wellness Week was founded by Momentum Professional Strategy Partners, a Black-owned Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) consulting firm. Their mission, "To be a catalyst for change, to improve institutional cultures and the communities they serve," resonates strongly with the goals of Black Wellness Week. By championing holistic well-being and addressing the physical, mental, and social health needs of Black communities, Elevate Black Wellness aims to tackle the health disparities exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Black Wellness Week not only honors the past but also propels us toward a future of culturally responsive health and wellness for our communities. It serves as a call to action, urging individuals and organizations to support and participate in events across the state. By coming together, we can break new ground in equity and health advocacy, ensuring that the legacy of Booker T. Washington and the tireless efforts of countless advocates continue to inspire and drive positive change.

Through our collective efforts, we can create a future where every individual, regardless of their background, has access to the resources and support they need to thrive. Black Wellness Week serves as a beacon of hope, guiding us towards a more equitable and healthier future for all.
