2024 Black History Month virtual festival presented by the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, Inc (ASALH). This annual innovative virtual festival programming will take place throughout February. This year’s festival will celebrate the theme of African Americans and the Arts in the past present and future.
 
African American art is infused with African, Caribbean, and Black American lived experiences. In the fields of visual and performing arts, literature, fashion, folklore, language, film, music, architecture, culinary, and other forms of cultural expression the African American influence has been paramount. African American artists have used art to preserve history community memory and empowerment. Artistic and cultural movements such as the New Negro, Black Arts, Black Renaissance, hip-hop, and Afrofuturism, have been led by people of African descent and set the standard for popular trends around the world. In 2024, we examine the varied history and life of African American arts and artisans.
 
In celebrating the history of African Americans and the Arts, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) puts into the national spotlight the richness of the past and present with an eye toward what the rest of the twentieth century will bring. ASALH dedicates its 98th Annual Black History Theme to African Americans and the arts.
