Join us for an interactive art exhibit and workshop series to celebrate Black History Month, led by educator Rachel Briggs! Children will have the opportunity to learn about lesser-known Black contributors to our history through storytelling and art.
About the series: “I noticed when I was teaching my children about history, I wasn’t spending enough time on the great contributions of individuals from African-American history. So I decided to use myself and them as a conduit to teach history. In doing so, I hoped that my children would feel proud of their ancestors, acknowledge their resilience, and adopt the grit that pushed them forward. These individuals are mostly unknown and have made major contributions to American society, from simple household items to major technological inventions that are still used in contemporary society.”
