Black History Month in Atlanta

February 2, 2021

It's Black History Month! This annual celebration started in 1976 as a way to honor the achievements of African Americans and their central role in our country's history. Every year there is a different theme and for 2021 it's "Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity." Atlanta, the home of Martin Luther King Jr, is the perfect place to celebrate Black History Month. Here are some places to visits and great events to check out:

The New Black Fest's Hands Up
7 Playwrights - 7 Testaments

Originally commissioned by the New Black Fest in response to the 2015 events in Ferguson, MO, where a police officer fatally shot Michael Brown, an unarmed Black teenager, Hands Up is comprised of separate monologues written by seven Black playwrights. The play depicts the realities of Black America from the perspective of varying genders, sexual orientations, skin tones, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
