Black History Month in SATX
February marks Black History Month in SATX.
As San Antonians celebrate Black joy, resilience, and empowerment in this month of February, we are encouraged to reflect on San Antonio’s Black History. We look at the fight for better representation in the Private sector and growth in our predominantly Black Eastside community. With organizations like San Antonio Growth on the Eastside (SAGE) leading the conversations and putting in the work to build a better future, we are committed to joining in on the hard work it takes to improve and sustain our Black Communities.
Here’s some ways you can support Black communities this month (and every month!):
- Watch our greater:SATX partner Brandon Logan speak in the KLRN documentary “Living in My Skin: Black Men in San Antonio Tell Their Stories” .
- Learn about the work San Antonio for Growth on the Eastside (SAGE) does in support of Economic Development .
- Shop at Black-owned stores .
- Support Black creators by reading and listening to books, podcasts, and/or the National Archives website.
- Support Black Causes & Charities .
- Attend a Carver Community Cultural Center event .
- San Antonio celebrates Black History Month with performances, exhibitions and tours: From vibrant art exhibitions to powerful theatrical performances, events around town throughout the month of February celebrate Black history in San Antonio and beyond. Dive into some of our city’s lesser-known history and experience the breadth of contemporary art being created and performed by local Black artists in the selection of Black History Month events.
- San Antonio’s huge Martin Luther King Jr. march to make 2023 comeback: On average, there have been more than 300,000 participants. While plenty of cities throughout the South are packed with history and regarded as key places during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, San Antonio can take pride in being home to one of the biggest Martin Luther King Jr. marches in the country.
