Black History Month is a uniquely American observance to celebrate the achievements of African Americans and to recognize the group’s central role in U.S. history. Black History Month promotes opportunities for cross cultural dialogue, personal interactions, and discovery. This event is open to anyone who wishes to learn, to share, and to grow and is sponsored in part by the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs.
