Black Heritage Month 2023
Join the Marcus Garvey Cultural Center as they host various programs, events, and highlights throughout the month of February in celebration of Black Heritage Month.
A renaissance is described as both a quintessential form of art & culture, but also as a revival of interest in an established culture. We chose Black Renaissance as our theme for the month for both reasons: understanding the essential & foundational work of Black people throughout American history & within American culture; but also, as a return to the knowledge that Blackness is expansive, inclusive & iconic— we as a people, are art in its purest forms. We wanted BHM to celebrate & reverberate the beauty of Blackness & Black people, from all viewpoints & perspectives.
