Black History Month

Black History Month

Black History Month serves as a powerful reminder of the ongoing journey toward equality and justice in Contra Costa County. Community leaders, activists, and advocates come together to address issues of systemic racism and inequality, striving to create a more inclusive and equitable society for all. 

Through dialogue, activism, and allyship, barriers can be dismantled to create opportunities for Black individuals to thrive. Through these collective efforts, the County fosters a sense of unity, respect, and empathy, reinforcing the importance of acknowledging and honoring Black heritage beyond the confines of a single month. Black History Month not only celebrates the past but also inspires hope for a future where diversity is embraced, and every voice is heard and valued. 

The official theme for this year’s Black History Month is African Americans and the Arts. We invite you to watch a presentation that examines the varied history and life of African American art movements, institutions, and artists, both past and present, throughout Contra Costa County.
