Moncus Park says that in February, they will celebrate Black History Month with educational and wellness-based community programming.

The month-long series will also feature Black entrepreneurs in various industries through spotlights on art, food, and history, they say.

“We want to both celebrate Black History Month and also recognize the defining contributions that Black leaders, educators, and entrepreneurs have made,” said Mary Allie Hebert, marketing strategist. “We invite everyone to join us not only during this month of cultural significance, but all year long as we work together to unify and support our Acadiana community.”
