Join us for a presentation by Dr. Wendy Wilson-Fall exploring themes of identity and culture as part of our Black History Month celebration. We are thrilled to be a part of a national dialogue that honors the lives of African Americans. Through this shared experience we invite you to examine notions of urbanism, class, economics, culture, race, identity, and how it all helped shape American history. Free admission
