Black History Festival NW
Thursday, February 28
The Black History Festival NW is an extension of World Stage Theatre’s consistent work around educating diverse communities about Black History. The festival is a region-wide event taking place during the month of February in different locations spanning as far east as Troutdale and west to Beaverton, south to Eugene and north to Vancouver, Wash. Each weekend an event highlighting and celebrating the African-American experience is presented by African-American organizations, artists, small businesses, and leaders. The festival will kick off with a youth-curated museum at various Multnomah County libraries and a citywide scavenger hunt that runs the entire month.
