This Black History Month, join Queens Public Library as we celebrate African Americans and the Arts! From the birth of Blues and Jazz to the heights of the Harlem Renaissance, Hip Hop, Afrofuturism, and more, Black Art has had a significant impact on our nation, our culture, and our world.

Use our Black History Month Journal's daily prompts to think about the past, present, and future of Black Art and Black Artists. Plus, you can read about milestone moments in Black Art History, learn about Black Art Icons, and more! There is exclusive Black History Month content that you can only find in the Journal, so pick up a copy at your local library or
download it here.
