How to Celebrate Black History Month in the DMV
Every year, we honor the contributions of African Americans and 2022 is no different. There are plenty of ways to celebrate Black History in the DMV this February, both online and in person.
Seabury is celebrating all month long, with special presentations and documentary showings at our senior living communities, as well as the annual Model Cities Black History Program, which will again be held virtually. Visit our calendar for more information: https://sites.google.com/view/model-cities-senior-center/.
Throughout the Washington, D.C. region there will be events and exhibits highlighting Black history. The National Museum of African American History & Culture is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 am - 5:30 pm. The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial is nearby in West Potomac Park. In Northeast D.C., the Woodridge Library is hosting weekly S.T.E.A.M activities for children of all ages and other programs are being held virtually and at various D.C. Public Libraries locations.
Of course, there is more to Black history than what is shared in February. Throughout the year, Seabury is proud to offer programming that celebrates the rich history and culture of the DMV.
