Black History Month in Jacksonville

A heart colored Red Yellow and Green and it says "Black History Month"

February is Black History Month and we have a couple opportunities where you can celebrate locally.

The Jacksonville’s Children’s Chorus presents the 14th Annual “Lift Ev’ry Voice & Sing” concert, celebrating Black History Month and the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The piece they’ll sing was written in Jacksonville by James Weldon Johnson. It was first preformed by a choir of Jacksonville children on February 12th, 1900, in honor of Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday.

This years performance will be Saturday, February 25th at 2:00 at Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church.


This Friday, the Museum of Science and History will host POWER – A dynamic fusion of arts, culture and history to celebrate Black History Month.

There will be live musicians, vendors, visual artists, small plates and tastings from local chefs. Bring the whole family!

It’s happening Friday night at 6 at The MOSH.
