In celebration of the United Nations’ International Decade for People of African Descent (2015-2024): “Recognition, justice and development,” The Prince George’s African American Museum is proud to announce Celebrating Black Arts and Culture, a series of fun, interactive, and educational public programs designed to honor the cultural and artistic contributions of people of African Descent.
The International Decade for People of African Descent (2015-2024) is a timely and unique opportunity to underline the important contributions made by the people of African Descent to our societies and to propose concrete measures to promote equality and to combat discrimination of any kind.
