Preston Black History Group is hosting an event, Black to the Future 2016, to celebrate Black History Month, October 2016. The event will highlight Black Achievements and Black Achievers. Our displays will illustrate some of the contributions made to the development of mankind by people of African origin throughout history. The achievers we present are Preston people who have succeeded in their individual fields and will share their inspirational journeys with you.  All too often these stories have not been heard. We think it is time for a change and time to celebrate our community.
