Founded in 2018, Worcester Black History Project (WBHP) recognizes and celebrates the experiences of Black people in Worcester and the surrounding area. WBHP encourages the preservation and sharing of this history through scholarly educational outreach and programming.

WBHP works with other local organizations and community stakeholders to advance its work in three key areas:

• Collection and preservation of local Black history

• Development and coordination of Black history programs and exhibits

• Creation of an accessible historical archive for students, educators, and community members

The WBHP Steering committee meets on the third Thursday of every month. If you would like to get involved, please reach out via our contact form. Click here to meet the members of the WBHP Steering Committee.
