Black History Month @ Main Library
Celebrates the Performing Arts
The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library is proud to celebrate Black History Month in February with a family program titled, Expression of Culture through the Performing Arts scheduled from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, February 28 in the McMaster Center at Main Library, 325 Michigan St. This lively program is free and open to the public. Please join us in celebration of the performing arts contributions of African Americans.
The annual observation of Black History Month was originated in 1926 by African American historian Carter G. Woodson, as "Negro History Week." Woodson chose February because it marked the birthdays of President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist Frederick Douglass, two Americans who Carter believed influenced the lives of black Americans.
