SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- ABC7 is proud to celebrate Black History Month this February by spotlighting the culture and achievements of our local African American community.
We'll update this page throughout the month as we feature some of the incredible people and organizations making an impact to help build a Better Bay Area.
We invite Bay Area artists to help celebrate Black History Month. Share your original artwork inspired by Black history past and present. Whether your medium is painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art, photography or crafts, local artists of all ages and backgrounds may submit entries HERE.
Also called African American History Month, the celebration was originally recognized as Negro History Week until 1976 when it expanded to a month. Learn more HERE.
