Stakeholders, please click here to see the calendar events for African American Heritage Month.

This year’s national theme is The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity. As we celebrate, we remember the representation, identify, and diversity challenges that families have experienced before us, as well as the rise of Black elected officials and campaigns for equal rights legislation and the critical role Blacks play in traditional and alternative politics today.

This calendar and cultural guide produced annually by our Department of Cultural Affairs also lists the many online events being held during this pandemic that our friends in the arts and cultural communities are hosting in celebration of African American Heritage Month. Please enjoy these fun and educational digital activities, as well as the wonderful artwork by our Black sisters and brothers showcased in this guide!
