Celebrating Black History Month

In recognition of the first day of Black History Month, The City of Sammamish has proclaimed the month of February as a month to recognize and honor Black History.

This year's national theme is Black Health and Wellness, which pays homage to medical scholars and health care providers. The theme is especially timely as we enter the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disproportionately affected minority communities.

The City’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion page will be updated throughout the month with events hosted by the Northwest African American Museum and informative resources by King County Libraries.
