Black History Month is an annual celebration of the achievements and contributions of the African American and Black communities—a time (though not the only time!) for emphasizing the central role of this varied community throughout U.S. history.
The “I Am a Girl Scout!” fun patch is designed to provide Girl Scouts and volunteers of all backgrounds with an opportunity to learn more about the cultures, histories and traditions of the Black and African American communities honored during Black History Month. We invite you to explore the cultures of these communities in your own state and across the country. We’ve got plenty of activities for you to choose from so that you can make new discoveries and have tons of fun learning while earning a cool patch! See the attached document here with the activities and information and then order your patch in our online shop here.
