Event Details:

Cultural Expressions Art Gallery Inc will present the 16th Annual Durham Black History Month Celebration on Saturday, February 4, 2023. It is Durham’s longest-running and most extensive, free Black History Month event, celebrating the beauty of Black culture and the diversity of the Black experience in Durham region. This year's theme, FOCUS, invites our community to look at the Black History and Black History-Makers right here at home. The people to inspire us, the resources we need to grow, and the networks that can lift us are all in our backyard.

Join us for community networking starting at 5 pm on Saturday, followed by performances by local artists, presentation of the annual Madiba award, and a keynote presentation in the J. Clarke Richardson Collegiate auditorium.

Tune in on Sunday at 2 pm for more programming as we live stream educational content including our series, Did You Know.
