JCPL kicked off this month’s celebration on Saturday, February 3rd. Dr. Kathy Bullock presented Singing in the Spirit: The African American Sacred Music Tradition, a powerful representation of the triumphant spirit and faith that have defined African-American music and people. That was followed by a program titled Black History Hall of Fame. Led by Dr. Daisy and Professor Paisley, this fast-paced adventure introduced over a dozen groundbreakers and Hall-of-Famers that have shaped our nation’s past, present, and future.

Coming soon, all are welcome to drop by for Learn & Go, where participants can test their knowledge about Black History Month and enter to win prizes. This come-and-go event is on Feb. 22 from 3–6 p.m.
