Created in 2002, the Black History Month Brunch is one of Genesee County’s premier events. It provides an opportunity for the community to come together to celebrate the contributions of African Americans to world history. The brunch also inspires residents to reach their full potential and to make a difference in our community, state and nation. A portion of the proceeds from this ticketed event helps support the GDL’s Summer Reading Challenge that reaches nearly 10,000 children and adults in Genesee County.

The 2019 event was a huge success! Thank you to the Early Literacy Sponsors, Dort Federal Credit UnionGDL FoundationThe Williams Firm, and Genesee Health System. Their sponsorship and donations will provide 300 books for GDL's youngest patrons who participate in this year's Summer Reading Challenge.

The 2020 Brunch will be held on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at the Genesys Conference & Banquet Center. Featured entertainment will be announced soon. Tickets will go on sale Monday, December 2.
