Black History Month “Kick Off Breakfast” February 3rd

ORLANDO – The Association for the Study African American Life and History (ASALH), Dorothy Turner Johnson (DTJ) Branch will begin Black History Month with a “Kick Off Breakfast”. The breakfast will be held on February 3rd at Shiloh Baptist Church, 9:30 am, located at 580 West Jackson Street, Orlando, Florida.

This is the inaugural annual Black History “Kick Off Breakfast” for the branch, which aims to educate, inspire, and bring together individuals from all backgrounds to commemorate the achievements and enduring legacy of African Americans. This event will feature engaging guest speakers, performances, and opportunities for networking, all in an atmosphere of unity and appreciation.

This year’s Black History Month theme is “African Americans and the Arts”.  African American art is infused with African, Caribbean, and the Black American lived experiences. In the fields of visual and performing arts, literature, fashion, folklore, language, film, music, architecture, culinary and other forms of cultural expression, the African American influence has been paramount. African American artists have used art to preserve history and community memory as well as for empowerment. Artistic and cultural movements such as the New Negro, Black Arts, Black Renaissance, hip-hop, and Afrofuturism, have been led by people of African descent and set the standard for popular trends around the world.

Please join us as we kick off Black History Month!!!!
