CCDP BLACK HISTORY MONTH PROGRAMMING
Next Monday begins the month of February, which means it is almost Black History Month! The Charleston County Democratic Party will celebrate Black History Month virtually this year to keep our community safe during the continued spread of COVID-19.
On our social media channels, specifically Facebook and Youtube, we will broadcast short, 15 minute programs on various themes throughout the week for the month of February as follows:
Medicine Mondays: At a designated time each Monday, we will hear from a Black healthcare professional on their topic of choice that relates to Black History
Wellness Wednesdays: At a designated time each Wednesday, we will hear from a Black wellness professional on various areas of wellness and self-care
Celebration of Black Food on Fridays: If you do not already, you should follow @BlackFoodFridays on Instagram & TikTok and support Black-owned restaurants whenever you eat out, but especially on Fridays! We’ll cross-promote @BlackFoodFridays content on our page to celebrate Black Food in the Lowcountry.
Sunday Brunch Series: At a designated time each Sunday, we will feature a historian to discuss pivotal moments in Black history over a “brunch-time” zoom or Facebook / Youtube Livestream

CCDP wants to promote nominating our virtual Blue Jamboree 2020 video for the Charleston City Paper’s Best Locally Produced Video of 2020.
