The city of Sterling Heights, in collaboration with members of the City’s African American Coalition, is hosting a month-long series of events in celebration of Black History Month.
The events are aimed at increasing local recognition of and engagement in Black History Month. Events and activities scheduled include:
“Black History Month is a time for recognizing and celebrating the many achievements and contributions African Americans have made to the formation of our country,” said Sterling Heights Mayor Michael Taylor. “We wanted to recognize the national month-long celebration, but we also wanted to underscore its importance locally by adopting a resolution recognizing February 2021 as Black History Month in Sterling Heights and working to host these educational and inspirational events for all our residents.”
