Black History Month
Did you know there are over fifty landmarks in the United States dedicated to African Americans? February is Black History month and we picked a few of the most fascinating landmarks that have history behind them!
First up is the Nicodemus National History Site in Nicodemus, KS. This site is named after an African-American slave who was freed and started a black community after the Civil War. This site houses a Township Hall, a Baptist Church, and a schoolhouse. The second landmark is Beale Street Historic District in Memphis, TN. Beale Street is the birthplace of the blues and BBQ. This is a huge tourist attraction for those wanting to have a good time and listen to live music. The final landmark to share is the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, OH. This museum takes you way back in history where you can see the struggles that African-Americans had for freedom.
Take a moment this month to appreciate your freedom and have far America has come!
All the classes start at 1:00 pm.
