The purpose of the Plant City Black Heritage Celebration, Inc. is to offer the community of Plant City a unique blend of African and African American Art, culture history, celebrate those who have and are carrying the torch passed on to us down the years by heroes in the search for equality and justice. It exists to support the culturally rich and diverse Plant City community by ensuring all events are inclusive of its entire people locally, as well as nationally noble men and women who had vision or a better world, and because of their vision, today, we enjoy the benefits of their unselfish and courageous acts. To further our mission, we sponsor a summer reading program: feed the homeless monthly; sponsor Santa sled program that give toys, food and bikes to needy families and award scholarships to deserving high school students to advance their education.
The Plant City Black Heritage Celebration, Inc. is pleased to announce that the 2022 Black Heritage Educational and Cultural Festival are scheduled for February 11, 12, 13 2022. This event coincides with Black History Month and provides a great opportunity for the Plant City community to honor the rich cultural history of African American nationally and as importantly locally.
