February 7-28, 2015: Black History Month at Lyles Station Historic School & Museum

February is "Black History Month," a time to commemorate African-Americans who have changed the world.

Celebrating Black History began in 1926, when Dr. Carter G. Woodson, a Harvard Ph.D., initiated "Negro History Week." Dr. Woodson, a historian, chose the second week in February because it included the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. In 1976, the Bicentennial (200th birthday) of the U.S.A., the week-long observance was extended to the entire month of February in order to have enough time for celebratory programs and activities.

Join us at Lyles Station during the month of February as we present:

February 14th at 1:00 P.M.

A presentation on African American farmers in Indiana by Vincennes University English Professor, Tyson Sims.

February 28th at 1:00 P.M.

Viewing of the Video "Who Do You Think You Are?" By the Indiana Historical Society and producer, Larry Laswell.

The program focuses on ethnic groups who settled Indiana, where they came from, why they came, how they maintain their heritage and the contributions they made to Indiana and the nation.

The Heritage classroom and museum will be available for guided tours each day until 4:00 P.M.

Lyles Station celebrates Black History EVERYDAY! Please support Lyles Station and their mission in preserving the African American Heritage in Indiana!
