Black History Month

Black History Month 2022

The City of Orlando is pleased to celebrate the positive contributions of our African American residents by dedicating the month of February to the rich and diverse Black culture and heritage. Black history is an integral part of American history because Blacks have played an essential role in building and shaping this great country.

Our prestigious Black History Month celebration will feature an opening reception of an art exhibition at City Hall’s Terrace Gallery and our signature community celebration event, which will highlight this year’s theme, "Black Resistance", that recognizes how African Americans have fought repression and inspired folks to participate in civil rights and racial equity movements.

As a welcoming and inclusive city, we are committed to continuing to celebrate our differences and dedicating this month to the rich and diverse Black culture and heritage.
