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 communities suggested a range of activities for the broader community to enjoy and better understand the histories and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Brisbane.

Black History Month runs throughout July each year and is a showcase of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures.
