About Black History Month

Each February, Black History Month pays tribute to the generations of African Americans who struggled with adversity to achieve full citizenship in American society.

This year's Black History Month has events all around the City throughout February. These events celebrate, inform, and educate residents on the history of African Americans in St. Louis.

Too often the history of our city goes untold. The streets we walk down or houses we pass have a storied past that is all too often forgotten. To commemorate Black History, we share the stories of places in our city that in one way or another have been home to the rich history of Black St. Louisans.
