Black History Month

Black History Month was launched in 2008 and developed after talks with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community groups indicated strong support for a specific cultural program.

The community groups suggested a range of activities for the broader community to enjoy and better understand the history and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Brisbane.

Black History Month runs throughout July each year, offering a range of unique experiences including family fun days, children's story time, dance performances, garden tours, community stalls, art exhibitions and more.

Black History Month 2024 events

This year’s Black History Month will reflect the diversity and importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and creativity, showcasing talent from the Islands in Far North Queensland while celebrating our own local Brisbane talent.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures are an important part of the cultural, social, and economic life of Brisbane. Learn about, experience and enjoy a variety of NAIDOC Week events held throughout the city.
