Black History Month


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, "African Americans and the Arts” allowing our Orlando community to celebrate the rich contributions of African American residents to our nation's cultural landscape throughout its history in the visual arts, performing arts, literature, film, music and much more.

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.

The City of Orlando is seeking local visual artists to display their artwork to celebrate Black History Month in the Terrace Gallery at Orlando City Hall from February 2 to March 31, 2024. Art is an intrinsic part of Black heritage and culture, and the city is offering an opportunity for artists to showcase the diverse richness of African American history and heritage through the visual arts.
