Black History Month, 2022

The Metuchen Downtown Alliance and the Metuchen Human Relations Commission are proud to celebrate Black History Month. We hope you join us as you shop and dine in Downtown Metuchen to learn the stories and enjoy the sentiments from a few prominent Black figures from around the globe; select posters will be displayed in store windows around Downtown Metuchen. We encourage you to learn about and share your own stories as we celebrate Black History – past, present and its future.
