This Harlem-based center has a whole slate of events planned to celebrate and honor Black History Month. Programs include a conversation on female Freedom Fighters (February 7), a Black Lives Matter teen conference (February 9), a conversation between author Jodie Patterson and transgender activist Tiq Milan (February 11) and a talk revisiting Alex Haley's biography of Malcom X (February 21). The month ends with a performance by the Harlem Chamber Players, including the world premiere of a work by composer Adolphus Hailstork (February 28). The Center will also host special exhibits during the month, including an opening of their archive of materials related to the transatlantic slave trade (February 13). The largest exhibit actually lasts longer than the month. An in-depth Martin Luther King Jr. photography exhibit, titled Crusader, runs from January 15 through April 6.
