LOCAL EVENTS: Black History Month 2023

February is Black History Month, and Twin Cities community members are hosting online and in-person events in commemoration.

According to the Library of Congress, the celebration has been around in some form since 1925, nearly 100 years ago. It originally began as a week and expanded to a full month in 1976.
