Black History Month is a fundamental part of our nation’s tradition, in which we recognize important historical events, honorable leaders and steps towards community well-being. Encompassing Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday weekend and all throughout February, the Library champions Black history, culture and heritage with programs spotlighting Black authors, artists, makers and movers. This celebration is titled More Than a Month in an effort to emphasize that reflection, open dialogue, interdisciplinary education and shared advocacy needs to take place in our communities during Black History Month, as well as all year round.
This year, in concert with Black History Month’s national theme of the importance of Black Health and Wellness, the Library offers free meditation, yoga and craft programs with local creators and businesses, as well as art programs in partnership with the Museum of the African Diaspora.
Join us to continue understanding, respecting and celebrating Black history and culture in San Francisco and beyond.
