SEATTLE – Seattle is a city known for its commitment to activism, diversity, equity and inclusion. We are a city dedicated to amplifying diverse voices. A city that has and will continue to be a pioneer in advocating for the dismantling of systemic racism, and for societal and cultural change.
Each February, Black History Month is an opportunity for Seattle to place special emphasis on the celebration of Black lives and voices. It’s a time for us to remember and mourn the racism and discrimination that has so long been a part of the story for Black Americans, and to continue fighting for greater equality and justice for the Black community in our city and beyond.
Visit Seattle is proud to support the efforts of partners who are joining their voices in the chorus to honor Black History Month. Below are just a few of the ways our city is celebrating throughout the month of February:
