Palm Beach County Library System Celebrates Black History Month

We will be offering events that honor the heritage, contributions and achievements of the African American community. This national celebration initiated by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, also known as the father of Black History, has its roots in a weeklong observation in 1926. We invite you to enjoy a wide variety of events in-person and online through Zoom.

To learn more about Dr. Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), visit

Sponsored by the Friends of the Palm Beach County Library System.
