In Celebration of Black History Month: Joyful Fridays Online

Tune in to uplifting sessions with Black history educators.

Join the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) each Friday in February for an online program exploring a vibrant element of Black history. The interactive Zoom webinars, designed for kids age four and up and led by a NMAAHC Kids educator, will include a hands-on craft matched to each week’s theme. Kids will learn about contributions the Black Panther Party made to the wellness of their communities (February 4); poet Maya Angelou (February 11); Granville T. Woods, the inventor behind today’s roller coaster (February 18); and abstract artists Alma Thomas and McArthur Binion (February 25). The Joyful Fridays programs are free, but registration is required. If you miss the programs on Fridays, recorded versions will be available on the NMAAHC UStream page.
