Behind the Scenes

The Black Heritage Festival curators have strong ties to the local Urbana community and want to use this time of celebration to give back and elevate the community they grew up in. Sponsorship and Partnership contributions to the festival will be poured back into the community through these three primary areas of impact:

 

Revitalization of Barbara Howell Park

Support for the homeless in Champaign County

Scholarships and mentoring for Youth
