Celebrate African-American History Month at all library branches. Don't miss our African-American themed programs, including lectures, storytelling, crafts, music and dance. All events are free.
This year's national theme--A Century of Black Life, History, and Culture--commemorates the 1915 founding of the Association for the Study of African-American Life and History (ASALH). The ASALH, formerly the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, established the first Black History week in 1926. Since 1976, U.S. presidents have designated February as African-American History Month.
