Celebrate Black History Month!

By Maribel De Jesús, Multicultural Outreach Services Librarian In branches throughout the entire county we will be offering events that honor the heritage, contributions and achievements of the African American community. Join us for book discussions, musical performances, films, African American genealogical research, and much more.

Black History Month has its national roots in a week-long observation initiated by Dr. Carter G. Woodson in 1926, it was expanded into Black History Month by President Ford in 1976, and became Public Law 99-244 in 1986. With over twenty events being offered there will be something for all ages and interests. For more details, view the list of events.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Palm Beach County Library System.
