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.

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.
