[ARCHIVED] Black History Month


As a community dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion, we are proud to celebrate Black History Month each year by fostering and sharing the history, achievements and contributions of African Americans in Fredericksburg and beyond.

We invite you to celebrate with us in our local Black history here in Fredericksburg. Share in our notable Black stories. Support our local Black-owned businesses. Find events and ways to get involved in celebrating online. 

Black History is American History.

It is an integral part of our collective past and present.

Fredericksburg has an important Black history, which may be explored through our many historic sites and stories captured through tours and educational experiences provided below. For 2022, the year’s theme for Black History Month is “Black Health and Wellness.”   Presented by The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), we encourage you to learn more through provided literature, visual arts and film studies, sociology, anthropology, and social policy explored in the ASCLH’s writings.
