Celebrate Black History Month with Nonotuck

As part of its continuing work to support the cause of racial justice and anti-racism, Nonotuck Resource Associates, Inc., is holding several virtual events during Black History Month.

Members of the Nonotuck community will have a film club discussion about the documentary “13th,” which explores race, justice and mass incarceration in the U.S., and a book club discussion of Octavia Butler’s book “Kindred.”

In addition, Nonotuck will host a Black History Month Panel, during which speakers will explore the theme “The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity.” The event will be held via Zoom.

In early March, Nonotuck’s CEO George Fleischner will host a “Month in Reflection” so members of the Nonotuck community can come together to reflect on the month of celebrating Black History, sharing their stories, thoughts and feelings or listening to what others have to say.

Many members of the Nonotuck community will also be participating other events and celebrations. We invite you to check out the following:

  • MLB Network honors Black icons. Each week in February, MLB Network is honoring a baseball icon. From Feb. 15-19, the network will recognize Lou Brock and from Feb. 22-26, the network will recognize Joe Morgan. Learn more at https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-network-black-history-month-2021-features.

“(Through shared living) people with a disability experience a real transformation and discover confidence in themselves; they discover their capacity to make choices, and also find a certain liberty and above all their dignity as human beings.”
