The event was held at The University of Illinois College of Medicine off of Parkview in Rockford. Organizers say they expected around two hundred guests to come to Sunday's event.

There were performances by Youth Against Violence Performing Arts, and Deuce Jibri. Organizers say they look to continue celebrating Black History Month throughout this month with more events to come.
