Celebrate Black History!
February 1-2, 5-9, 12-16, 19-23 and 26-28, 2014
At Henry Ford Museum, Black History Month is a time of celebration and examination, a time of assessment and questioning. Select days each week during February, we explore a different aspect of African-American history, from the northern migration and the roots of civil rights history to the triumphs and challenges of the present day. Fifty years ago, the idea that an African American might be president was unimaginable. How did we get from there to where we are today? From what Africans brought here as slaves to modern-day visionaries who have changed the course of American history, the history of black Americans is filled with possibility, promise and pain. You’ll find activities everywhere you go in the museum, including the Michigan Café, where we offer African-American-inspired recipes that are available only during Black History Month.
