About Us

We are working to bring to public consciousness our shared history. The Committee has elected to act in the tradition of our forebearers and in accordance with the axiom “None of us are free until we all are free” recognize abolition of enslavement in all parts of the Americas.
The Black Heritage Festival comes together annually through the efforts of a volunteer committee:
