MIRAMAR, FL – The City of Miramar invites the community to join us for a month-long celebration of Black History Month. The city has various family-friendly events planned for residents to gather, learn and reflect on the accomplishments, history, culture and contributions of black Americans in Miramar and throughout our nation’s history.

Vice Mayor Alexandra P. Davis stated, “We are thrilled to be celebrating Black History Month with our Miramar residents. This gives us a chance to recognize the achievements of African Americans in our community. Black History Month also coincides with Reggae Month, which we will be celebrating for the first time this year in collaboration with the Honorable Olivia Grange, Jamaica’s Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.

The events that the city has planned for the month of February will also celebrate the history of Reggae music and the impact it has had on a global level. The month of February will feature exciting events for our community members of all ages.”

Dr. Ighodaro, Miami Gardens Councilman added, “As the first Nigerian African elected to public office in South Florida, I am pleased to join Vice Mayor Alexandra Davis and the City of Miramar as they celebrate the various cultures of African descent during Black History month, all while highlighting the contributions of African Americans.”
