Black History Month Closeout Celebration


MIAMI – As we closeout February’s Black History Month celebrations, the Miami-Dade Black Affairs Advisory Board, invites you to enjoy Miami-Dade County’s Transit Expression, a group of transit employees whose mission is to bring joy to others through music and poetry. The festivities will take place from noon – 2 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 21 in the lobby of the Stephen P. Clark Center, 111 NW 1st Street, Miami, FL.

The Black History Month Closeout Celebration is sponsored by the Black Affairs Advisory Board’s Heritage Planning Committee. This committee raises money to help postsecondary students supplement their educationally-connected finances. Since its inception, the Young Pillars Scholarship has awarded more than $45,000 to students attending various academic institutions throughout Miami-Dade County and the United States.

During the Closeout Celebration, vendors and food truck chefs will be donating a part of their proceeds to the Young Pillars Scholarship Fund. To view the calendar of events for the month of February, visit
