About this event

Cultural Expressions Art Gallery Inc will present the 16th Annual Durham Black History Month Celebration on Saturday, February 4, 2023. It is Durham’s longest-running and most extensive, free Black History Month event, celebrating the beauty of Black culture and the diversity of the Black experience in Durham region. This year's theme, FOCUS, invites our community to look at the Black History and Black History-Makers right here at home. The people to inspire us, the resources we need to grow, and the networks that can lift us are all in our backyard.

Join us for community networking starting at 5 pm on Saturday, followed by performances by local artists, presentation of the annual Madiba award sponsored by Elexicon Energy, and a keynote presentation in the J. Clarke Richardson Collegiate auditorium.

Tune in on Sunday at 2 pm for more programming as we live stream educational content including our series, Did You Know.

Each year, Cultural Expressions is pleased to bring to you a wealth of Black History Month programming through the support of our volunteer committee as well as our partners: Elexicon Energy, Durham Children's Aid Foundation, Durham District School Board, Durham Catholic District School Board, Congress of Black Women (Ajax/Pickering, Oshawa/Whitby) and Durham Black Coalition. And we thank this year's sponsors for their generous support: Ajax Public Library and Rotary Ajax.
