Philadelphia is a city that is so rich in history, a New York Times columnist once complained there was too much historical significance here. But as the birthplace of the nation, we are proud to be the site of so many important events, places, and, of course, people. During Black History Month we set time aside to specifically focus on the major accomplishments, roles, and experiences of African-Americans. From the rich US history to several museums that feature arts and artifacts from Africa, there are many ways to gain a deeper understanding of Black History just by tapping into some of the many offerings in Philadelphia. Here is our roundup of some of the best for younger children, but this is just a small sampling of the rich Black history programming and events available throughout the city in the month of February. Check our events calendar for even more fun and educational activities.
