February is Black History Month.
This year, the national theme of the month is African Americans and the Arts. From visual and performing arts, literature, fashion, folklore, language, music and film, Black artists have used their creative outlets to preserve and share their history and instill empowerment in their communities.
Montgomery County will recognize Black History Month with virtual events on February 14 and February 21 and an in-person event on February 28.
