The Flag will be raised at 12 noon sharp. Dress appropriately for weather. Raising the flag should take 5 minutes.
Immediately after flag is raised, we will proceed inside City Hall lobby for a short program.

We raise the Red, Black & Green Flag in Boston in honor of Black History, Black Nationalism, Pan-Afrikanism and its creator Hon. Marcus Mosiah Garvey.

For February Black History Month we especially pay tribute to:

* Feb. 1, 1926 Carter G. Woodson “The Father of Black History” initiated the first celebration of “Negro History Week”.
* Feb. 1, 1976 expanded to “Black History Month”
* Rosa Parks born Feb. 4, 1913

* WEB DuBois born Feb. 23, 1868
* 15th Amendment Right to Vote

Note: Black History Month was recently renamed by US Pres. Donald Trump “National African American History Month” How’s that grab you?? (no pun intended)
