Join us in February as we celebrate Black History Month with a full schedule of special tours, programs, films, and more. Although we tell these stories throughout the year, the special focus this month allows us to appreciate just how far we've come-and how far we still have to go.

More than half of 18th-century Williamsburg residents were African American. Almost all were enslaved. Our February observances remind us that the one measure of our progress as a nation is how far we've come in making the rights and freedoms hailed by the founders available to all Americans.
