The month of February is finally here and that means it’s time to read up on a little African American history. This month in Houston, Texas the public library and a variety of places are hosting events to commemorate Black History.
It’s with honor and thankfulness that we recognize the many achievements of the sons and grandsons, daughters and granddaughters of former slaves.
Some of these African Americans who lived in past generations, other centuries and the past few years are unsung heroes whose inventions, ingenuity and integrity has shaped this country into a collective of strong united states.
Here is a short list of museums in Texas that house well known collections of Black History.
- George Washington Carver Museum
- African American Museum of Dallas
- Fort Davis
- Fort Davis National Historic Site
- Fort Worth
- National Cowboys of Color Museum and Hall of Fame
- Buffalo Soldiers National Museum
We plan to take part in a few of the Black History programs slated to recognize some of the talented African American entertainers, athletes, and authors that call Houston home. Maybe we'll run into you at one of the various branches of the Houston library that are hosting meet and greets, right in your neighborhood with some of today most popular Black authors in Houston.
