Join us for the statewide kickoff to Black History Month and celebrate North Carolina's diverse African American heritage and culture! This year's theme, Defining Freedom, honors the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. Over 75 musicians, storytellers, dancers, historians, playwrights, authors, artists, re-enactors, chefs, teachers, scholars, and other presenters will help tell the rich and varied stories of our state. It's educational and fun for the whole family.
This program is supported by the North Carolina African American Heritage Commission, the North Carolina Museum of History Associates, and the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County, with funds from the United Arts campaign as well as the North Carolina Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes a great nation deserves great art.
