African American Cultural Celebration

20th Annual African American Cultural Celebration

An online experience: Saturday, Jan. 30.

Join us virtually for our 20th Annual African American Cultural Celebration, the statewide kickoff to Black History Month. Named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society since 2015, this year’s annual celebration will bring together community organizations, authors, artists, musicians, filmmakers, and scholars to showcase the contributions that African Americans, past and present, have made to North Carolina’s history and culture. This year’s digital format will allow the Museum of History to share those contributions in a safe environment to a statewide audience. The theme Health and Healing will include a range of information about health disparities and about steps that African Americans can take to promote and preserve their health. Register for online sessions!

Become a Museum of History (MOHA) member at the event, and get your membership for half-price!

The event's official hashtag is #AACC2021!

The 20th Annual African American Cultural Celebration is held in partnership with the NC African American Heritage Commission and the North Carolina Museum of History Associates.

This project is funded in part by the City of Raleigh based on recommendations of the Raleigh Arts Commission.
