The Power of Love: A Black History Discovery Program

All month | From 9 a.m.—6 p.m.

While Black History Month celebrates many African American icons, we often don’t know much about the leader’s partner. Love is an integral element to what these icons were able to achieve. Five Points West Library is focusing on the softer sides of black trailblazers, so patrons can learn a little more about well-known black historical figures.
