Black History Month (and beyond) Article Series

To celebrate Black History Month, ELGL is launching a writing series focused on Black joy and experiences in public service. Our goal is to highlight and amplify Black voices in local government, although posts from allies are welcome as well.

We’ll showcase and share your ideas so others can learn from your experiences. As always, anonymous submissions are welcomed if that’s a better way for you to express your ideas. 

Writing prompts (use one of these, or write from your own perspective):

  • What does Black History Month mean to you, personally?

  • What is Black joy for you? What is that joy in public service?

  • It’s important to encourage diversity and inclusion around the world and within our communities because…

  • Has there been a Black local government leader or local elected official who has made a difference in your life or career? What did they teach you?

  • Do you have any favorite stories of Black joy in public service?

  • What can you learn from someone of another race?          

  • What does allyship mean for you? How do you show up?                     

Other general writing ideas:                                 

  • Poem 

  • List Poem 

  • Art & Performance Review (anything black artistry they love and want to uplift) 

  • Creating a Historical Dialogue (if I ever had a chance to meet MLK, this is what I would ask/say/envision the conversation to go) etc.
