The Black Experience in NYC | Black Culture & The Freedom To Be #BlackHistoryMonth
Awesome and uplifting content from NYCGo.com in celebration of Black History Month.
Black culture is integral to the identity of NYC, the city with the largest Black population in the US. Its influence can be felt across the five boroughs in many forms: world-renowned music and style, a celebrated food scene, the visual and performing arts, live experiences, business owners and all who lead the charge in keeping the City progressive, resilient and safe.
With this content series, we spotlight, celebrate and amplify New York City’s Black experience and the community whose cultural contributions reverberate around the globe. Bookmark this page and remember to check back as we will continue to add new content.
