About Black Artstory Month
Black Artstory Month on Myrtle Avenue Black Artstory Month is an annual series that celebrates the contributions that African Americans have made and are making within the visual and performing arts world. Every year the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership partners with local artists and arts organizations to present the month-long celebration, and activate the main street with public art & FREE cultural programming. This year, Myrtle Avenue is working with Black Gotham Experience (BGX) an immersive multimedia project that celebrates the impact of the African Diaspora on New York City with walking tours, a photography-based graphic novel series, and events.
