Black History Month is celebrated in February to acknowledge life struggles and accomplishments of African American people. Our goal is to enlighten and empower others through knowledge and understanding. It is an opportunity to reach others and establish relationships with other cultures. We invite our fellow City employees and the public to attend and participate.

The Black History Celebration provides a variety of events reflecting African American history and culture. Many of the events are supported and sponsored by various departments and agencies. To learn more about how you can promote your event on this website contact Preston Hampton.
