Celebrating Black History Month at the Free Library

By Inaara S. RSS Tue, February 1, 2022

This February, the Free Library is proud to commemorate Black History Month, honoring the triumphs and achievements of Black Americans throughout U.S. history and celebrating Black history, culture, and heritage.

Black History Month offers all of us an opportunity to learn more about the significant contributions of Black Americans, including Black artists, politicians, inventors, and scientists, which led to important moments that defined the course of history for our country, our city, and our local communities.

Join the Free Library in observing the festivities of Black History Month with programming available for all ages throughout Philadelphia:


Whether you're attending an in-person or virtual event, make sure to also access the incredible databases, booklists, and digital resources available online to continue learning about and celebrating Black history.

Why am I missing any reference to our great American hero MARIAN ANDERSON - The Lady From Philadelphia? Her 125th Birthday is 27 February, during African American History month, which will be celebrated on the campus of Cheyney University that day... by prior registration.
