Black History Month Events in Austin, Texas (Part One)

  |     |   History

When we research all the festive things to do in Austin to share with you, we are continually delighted to see all the options for our neighbors at Juniper Springs.  And this month, there are lots of events throughout our city that are celebrating monumental moments in African American history and people who have made a difference throughout Austin over the years.  
We encourage you to get out to support these events created to share some of the City’s history with your family and friends.
