On March 9, 2022, Governor Hochul signed an Executive Order to create the New York State Commission on African American History.
The Commission serves to highlight contributions by Africans and African Americans to our country and to New York State. The Commission will partner with community-based organizations to bring New Yorkers together through events, cultural programming, scholarly research, and other activities that promote a greater understanding of the history and achievements of African Americans throughout the State.
This public meeting is for members of the general public to learn more about the work of the Commission and will include a Q&A session.
This program is free, but attendance in-person is limited and registration is required. Please RSVP with your name and contact information to RSVP-NYSCAAH@dos.ny.gov.
Virtual attendance is also available. The meeting will be livestreamed and recorded.
