In its second “official” year, Australia’s Blak History Month is steadily gathering momentum and is being helped along by social networking tools.
There is –
- a Facebook group “I’ll be Celebrating Australia’s Blak History Month”. There are resource sheets available here. Go to http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=62159984672
- a Twitter hashtag “group” #austblakhistorymonth
And importantly, there is a “buzz” as more people start talking about this new celebration.
Of course, a big shout out goes to Sam Cook from @kissmyblakarts for kicking the whole thing off in 2008 (and for the initial logo design).
So keep sharing folks, what you’re doing? what you want to do now and/or in the future?
It will also be interesting to watch as non-Indigenous Blak Australians start participating from their own communities.
Late addition to this post:
