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 and Worcester Historical Museum (WHM) are working in collaboration with local organizations and community stakeholders in the collection and preservation of this important local history.
