Reclaim Your Rhythm this Black History Month
This February, during Black History Month, the American Heart Association is encouraging Black women to Reclaim Your Rhythm and take control of their mental and physical well-being. Like taking a familiar song and adding, removing or changing pieces of it, Black women have been empowered with greater knowledge and determination to heal and protect their physical and mental health and wellbeing. In recognition of the physical and emotional toll the global pandemic and structural racism has taken on Black women, AHA will help empower Black women to bring to light their overall mental and physical well-being by using and uplifting their voices and sounds. Reclaim Your Rhythm will also use music to get their hearts pumping, or to rest or relax. Music means so many things to different people across the country. Your favorite playlist can change the trajectory of your day. In recognition of Black History Month, we have invited some of our favorite folks to share the songs by Black artists to get you moving alone or with others, or to help you rest and relax. We’ve also asked them to share their thoughts on the importance of taking care of their heart health and mental well-being.
