Mayor Ambrosio Hernandez, M.D. and the Pharr City Commission approved a proclamation declaring February 2024 as Black History Month. Each year, February is designated as Black History Month to remember and reflect on the tribulations faced by the Black community while learning from the vibrant culture and history and celebrating its many invaluable contributions.

 The 2024 national theme for the observance is “African Americans and the Art.” This theme acknowledges the legacy of digital, literary, visual, and performing arts of Black trailblazers and innovators who revolutionized their fields, often transforming them by pioneering new techniques and styles of art. 

Accepting the proclamation was Imayo York, Secretary for Village in the Valley (ViVa), which is a local organization dedicated to elevating and uniting the black community while connecting cultures in the Rio Grande Valley. “We thank the City of Pharr for recognizing Black History Month and the contribution of blacks to the Rio Grande Valley, including their support of Viva on many occasions,” said York. She also announced that as part of Black History Month, ViVa will be hosting its first Digital Literacy Master Class in conjunction with a grant awarded from Prairie View University at the Pepe Salinas Recreatopm Center in Pharr on Friday, February 23, 2024.
