Black History Month: Family-Friendly Events in New York

Black History Month is the time to honor the accomplishments of African Americans and their place in history; there is no better way to introduce kids to black culture than to visit the various family-friendly events in New York.

The first Balck History month was celebrated half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States. In 1925 Carter G. Woodson decided it was time to raise awareness of African American’s contributions to society, science, and culture. Today, we continue to honor Black History Month with artistic performances, history lectures, celebrations, and more! As these traditions continue, there are more and more ways to celebrate this month. That’s why we have round-up family-friendly events around the city for Black History Month to celebrate black culture and achievements.
