Celebrating Black History Month

We observe the month with activities and events to recognize the contributions African-Americans have made to the country and to PNC.

Prioritizing the Traditions and Cultures in our Communities

Black History Month and other history and heritage celebrations help us to demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion. They give us an opportunity to better understand the rich traditions and cultures of our diverse employees, customers and communities; celebrate their achievements and contributions; and strengthen our relationships to help better meet their financial needs.
