Black History Month celebrates the many achievements and contributions made by African-Americans to our economic, cultural, spiritual, and political development. Every Saturday during the month of February, there are a series of free events that focus on the African-American history and Gullah heritage of Mount Pleasant. The Town of Mount Pleasant Historical Commission will celebrate its 7th annual Black History Month in February 2021!
