New Jersey Celebrates Black History Month

State’s events honor historical and cultural contributions made by the African-American community.

February is nationally recognized as Black History Month, designed as a nationwide celebration of the achievements and contributions African Americans have made throughout U.S. history. Throughout New Jersey various events and cultural institutions are hosting special exhibits, guided tours, musical performances and more to showcase African-American history and culture during the month.

“We are proud to welcome visitors to celebrate African-American history and culture through dynamic performances, exciting artwork and more,” said New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way. “We have a commitment as a state to preserve our history and celebrate our diversity all year long but are thrilled to see the wide range of events being hosted by our cultural partners during Black History Month.”
