Free Library celebrates 2023 Black History Month

This month, the Free Library of Philadelphia is proud to celebrate Black History Month through programs and resources for all ages at locations around the city!

Join us as we share with one another the phenomenal talents, works, and achievements of the Black community from both Philadelphia and around the world. The Library has a calendar of events and activities that celebrate the contributions and accomplishments of Black Americans throughout history.
