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

  |     |   Culture, Heritage, Uncategorized

Earlier this month we highlighted events throughout our city that are celebrating monumental moments in African American history and people who have had influence throughout Austin over the years. As there are so many events underway, we decided to continue to share them with you.
We encourage you to get out to support these events created to share some of the City’s history with your family and friends.

Celebrate Black Austin 
Kenny Dorham’s Backyard

This event is focused on the opportunity to learn all about Austin’s rich black history through a walking tour of East Austin.  The walk will highlight historic landmarks and street art that amplifies stories of significant people and events that shaped the region. After the tour, participants will be welcomed to shop and support local Black owned businesses. 

February 25, 2024
Central Market Austin, North Lamar

For a culinary treat, this is another ‘must-do’ within all the Black History Month events in Austin.  Enjoy a delicious brunch with recipes created by prominent Black Chefs and Cookbook Authors – made by yours truly!  At this interactive event, you will be coached on creating a healthy feast of “silky eggs, creamy grits, winter salad, gluten-free corn muffins and an incredible cinnamon roll.”

Kid’s Day at Carver Museum

Spend the afternoon learning about Black Heritage at the Carver Museum from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm.  The theme for this year is “Black Resistance” and the activities will include arts and crafts and a celebration of African American trailblazers. It’s free for the public, and you need to register for the event.  

African America Cultural and Heritage Facility

Throughout the month, the AACHF is another option to learn more about the African American Culture. During February, and throughout the year, the Facility offers arts, business, cultural and entertainment programming that is offered for all ages and interests.  You can also tune into The Pivot – which is a live stream podcast about topics relevant to East Austin. 

George Washington Carver Museum, Freedom Plaza
 

Finally, here’s another spot to include on your list as we celebrate Black History Month in Austin.  Visit the backyard space at the Carver Museum known as “Freedom Plaza.”  Within its lovely setting is a “Juneteenth Memorial Sculpture.”  The entire staff at the Museum continues to create a space where the global contributions of all Black people are celebrated.
