About the Worcester Black History Project

The Worcester Black History Project (WBHP) was founded in 2018 and later established a partnership with Worcester Historical Museum. WBHP recognizes and celebrates the experiences of Black people in Worcester and the surrounding areas by encouraging the preservation and dissemination 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

Support Our Work

Your support of the Worcester Black History Project will continue the important work of documenting, convening and sharing the history of Black people throughout Worcester County. We believe that Black history matters, and by sharing this history we deepen our understanding of this region and ourselves.
