We believe all people can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
The purpose of the parade is to bring African American History to a public audience and engage in public diversity by inviting the diverse groups of Houston to join in the parade and the audience. Following the Parade, we will present the Health and Wellness Symposium at Texas Southern University (TSU) along with the Essay and Art Contest winners at 12:30 p.m.
Members of the community regardless of race, color, ethnicity or culture are invited to the event to enjoy a well attended parade which includes noted community members, elected officials, community groups, school and church units, singing and dancing units, city service vehicles, and community members who have participated in the history of Houston Texas and surrounding areas.
