In celebration of Black History Month, join us for a historical presentation on the challenges faced and overcome by African-Americans out West and the role of western states in the events leading up to, during, and succeeding the Civil War, closing with a look at the continued fight for racial equality throughout the 20th century.

There will be an additional craft/activity following the presentation, in which we will be making sun-catchers inspired by the lantern Harriet Tubman used to lead hundreds of enslaved people to freedom under the cover of darkness using the Underground Railroad.
