Black History Month 2020 at Seaside Library

Our Black History Month celebration of African American icons past and present is nearing its end, but there are still great programs and events for you to enjoy and participate in at our libraries!

We want to know how you or someone you know has been inspired by an African American trailblazer to carry on their legacy. What have you done or do you plan to do that will advance their achievements? Visit our Sharing Stories page and enter your story for a chance to win a Black History book bundle!

Black History Month 2020 Sharing Stories


You can visit your local library to see our Spotlight posters and learn about African American icons past and present. These icons, and many more, are also available online!

You can play our Black History Month Memory Game, match the cards of African-American icons, and learn something new while playing; try a round of “From … To ...” and test your trivia knowledge by connecting the icons of the past with the people who continue their legacy; or step In the Footsteps of Art Giants and create your own masterpiece inspired by an exciting new generation of African American artists.

Don’t miss our remaining Black History Month programs, including author talks, art and crafts events, film screenings, concerts, and much more. When you attend a program, you can even receive one of our special commemorative Black History posters, but only while supplies last! And don’t forget to check out these wonderful Black History Month book displays!

We hope you will continue to Go Far, Go Together with us for the rest of Black History Month!
