Celebrating Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, we are showcasing some of the exceptional African American artists who have thrilled audiences and made invaluable contributions to the Met’s legacy. Below, explore a digital exhibition chronicling the history of Black artists at the Met, relive memorable past performances from generations of legendary stars, and enjoy free streams of Terence Blanchard’s Champion, Verdi’s La Forza del Destino, and Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle.
