Urban League of Greater Hartford is presenting its 5th annual Black History Celebration!  The theme for this year's signature event is "A Legacy Revealed - Champions of Justice," a cultural experience showcasing the achievements and innovations of people of color, particularly in social justice and advocacy.


Throughout the event, the audience will be introduced to advancements and milestones in African-American, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Latino cultures. Youth and volunteers from throughout the city will re-enact historical figures, act as exhibit tour guides and provide various forms of history and entertainment.

Browse "Legacy Stations", listen to live music and sample culturally-inspired hors d'oeuvres. Learn about the rich history, resources, services and activities offered by individuals/organizations within the community.  Attendees may also enter for a chance to win a prize as they explore, engage and acquire info from local exhibitors.  

Legacy Showcase   | 7-8:30 p.m.
Entertaining and thought provoking historical and cultural presentations will be shared through music, poetry and dance while we acknowledge the contributions of featured Legacy Honors recipients.


This night will be a multi-sensory experience to remember as we inform, entertain and educate the community about Hartford's history and culture!
