The Soul of Port Arthur
Black History Month calls for celebration of Port Arthur’s diverse heritage. Our “City by the Sea” reflects pride in community, music, food and faith.
Pride that Matters
Port Arthur’s West Side story, Juneteenth, murals, trill vibes and more are featured on Soul of Port Arthur, the African-American tour of Port Arthur. Play at Barbara Jacket Park, honor a veteran and humanitarian, learn about Kwanzaa and worship at historical churches. Be sure to tune into Stephen A. Mosely on The Breeze Radio, KSAP – 96.9 FM/LP.
