February in Atlanta gives us an incredible opportunity to learn and celebrate Black History Month through art and community, no matter your age or background.
Here’s an incredibly helpful (and thorough) list of Atlanta Black History Month events including: Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater performances and gospel choirs at the Fox Theatre; dance and jazz at the Rialto Center for the Arts and Emory University’s Schwartz Center for Performing Arts; the Margaret Mitchell House’s Big Read events; a portrait exhibition at the Atlanta History Center; a photo exhibition at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site; exhibitions at Hammonds House and Spelman College; children and family activities at Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta and Callanwolde Fine Arts Center; “Our Town” at True Colors Theatre and the Gwinnett Choral Guild at Spivey Hall in Morrow.
Whoa. That’s a lot.
That doesn’t even include activities at local libraries and book stores — events that are often free and family-friendly. Rana Cash over at Atlanta Bargain Hunter has posted deals and discounts on some of these events, and AccessAtlanta.com has a few ticket giveaways coming up, too.
As always, you can find more Black History Month activities in the AccessAtlanta.com calendar, and if you don’t see an event that should be there, you can add it, too. (Yep. It’s free.)
