African-American Artists In U.S. History

This February, we are celebrating Black History Month (BHM) by showcasing work created by and featuring a collection of African-American artists, activists, and amazing heroes that fought for change in our country over the years. See our curated portfolio of projects relating to iconic black leaders through memorials, monuments, and murals across the nation below and follow along with us on social media as we share more about their impact on our country.

Black History Month (BHM) gives everyone the opportunity to appreciate and understand Black heritage and culture. It is an annual celebration of achievements and a time for recognizing African-Americans’ central role in U.S. history. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month, and in January 2021, we all witnessed history being made as Kamala Harris, the first African-American, first Asian-American, and the first female was sworn in as Vice President of the United States of America. By celebrating BHM, we are honoring history as well as encouraging progress for the future.
