BLOOMFIELD, NJ – It's Black History Month and Bloomfield is once again celebrating with a Community Social on Saturday, February 24th, from 1:00-4:00 PM at the Oakeside Cultural Center (240 Belleville Avenue). The event is hosted by the Township's Juneteenth Advisory Committee and will include performances from the Bloomfield Jubilee Choir, local vendors, food, crafts, stories, music, and history for all ages.

"This vibrant gathering is a wonderful opportunity for us to celebrate the rich tapestry of our shared history, and honor, embrace, and amplify the diverse voices that have shaped our community,” said Councilwoman Sarah Cruz, Member of the Juneteenth Advisory Committee

In 2020 Councilwoman Cruz began acknowledging Township residents for Black History Month and since then, nine people have been issued Proclamations for their contributions to Bloomfield's Black History, and had their story entered into the archives of the Bloomfield Historical Society. Past honorees have included Bloomfield College President Dr. Marcheta Evans, youth Poet Michaela Norman, Senator Ron Rice, Philanthropist Mac Hypolitte, the Boone Family, and the Bloomfield Township Juneteenth Advisory Committee.

To attend the Black History Month Community Social, please RSVP to Eunice Cirne (973-680-4077) as space is limited.
