There’s no doubt Detroit has a rich Black history and culture. With so many virtual events and special in-person activities happening, Black History Month is an amazing opportunity to continue educating ourselves about the importance of Black history in our city and our country. If you prefer to stay in, it’s never been easier than this year to learn from the comfort of your own couch. Want to get some hands-on experiences or get out of the house? There are a few options available for you this year as well. No matter how you soak it in, please be sure to take some time this month to help your children learn about Black history.
