Black History Month 2020

Black History Month 2020

Good morning, dear readers! I am popping back onto the blog after an absence of several months to wish you all a (much belated) happy new year. It is February already, meaning that it is once again Black History Month. Our annual display of biographical panels on notable Wellington citizens of color is currently showing on East Herrick Avenue and within the Herrick Memorial Library. This year, local genealogist Marilyn Wainio researched and wrote brand new panels on four notable African-American men.

We will be mounting our annual Women’s History Month exhibition in the same two locations in March. If you are strolling downtown, please take a moment to learn about some truly fascinating people from the village’s past.
