Highlighting Black History and Culture in Our Community

Learn about the Tuscaloosa Black Heritage Festival

Although Alabama only recently recognized Juneteenth as a state holiday in 2012, residents have been celebrating the end of slavery in the U.S. for generations. The Tuscaloosa Black Heritage Festival commemorates Juneteenth by showcasing Black-owned businesses, artists and performers.

A portion of the proceeds will support local schools. Attend this year's Juneteenth celebration to help fund home economics and personal finance programs in your community.
