MyKingstonKids in partnership with Harambee are proud to present the fourth year of Black History Month Kingston. The past 3 years have been historic and have displayed the unified consciousness of the community of Kingston, New York. During this month African-American contributions are highlighted along with strategies of growth, awareness and celebration. With over 100 events city wide to date 2021 will continue this very important project.
Due to the unforeseen challenges and restrictions of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we felt it would be best for our community's safety to limit in-person events. Most Black History Month Kingston programming will be held virtually through various online platforms.
The festivities will start on Monday, February 1st, 2021. On Saturday, February 6th, there will be a virtual annual Kick Off event including art exhibits, performances, spoken word, dance, and more. The month will include participation from a variety of organizations, churches and businesses including lectures and workshops, along with a special Sojourner Truth Life Community Ride, performances, dances, virtual business mixers and more.
Please check back for updates about events and activities in early January 2021.
We would like to also acknowledge the support of
The City of Kingston & Mayor Steve Noble
and The County & Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan.
