ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – On Wednesday February 12th, join Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and City Commissioners as they host the City of Orlando’s Black History Month Reception.

It will feature the presentation of a city proclamation, cultural performances, a keynote speaker, food and refreshments. The reception begins at 5:30pm with free admission.
