Celebrate Black History Month through Montclair Public Library’s upcoming programs!
Montclair Public Library has a variety of upcoming programs celebrating African American achievements throughout history. The library’s Adult School Department will also be offering Black History Month classes and lectures.
“Black History Month is valuable for its ability to instill confidence and esteem in a population that hasn’t always had the means to write and celebrate its history. It’s vital for other ethnic groups to participate, as well, because only a cumulative compassion for each segment in our population can help us progress as a nation,” said Chelsea Dodd, Information Specialist.
The featured programs are:
- Wednesday, February 1 at 7pm
Don Miller’s “The King Mural”
