If delving into African American history and this community’s present-day accomplishments is what you’re interested in, you’ve come to the right place.

Throughout the year, a myriad of opportunities to honor black legacy are front and center in Durham. Our Bimbé Cultural Arts Festival combines performing arts and craft markets to stimulate the senses in a day-long event. There are Kwanzaa celebrations, Black Wall Street innovation panels at American Underground, the Beats n’ Bars Festival, Art of Cool, Juneteenth and the Hayti Heritage Center’s Blues and Roots Celebration. Don’t miss the Martin Luther King Jr. and Black History Month Durham Parade, Black August in the Park, or markets featuring black business owners. Durham reflects the brilliant contributions of its African-American community.

We invite you to bask in the glow.
