ALPLM celebrates Black History Month and Lincoln’s birthday

By Galen Isringhausen

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will celebrate Lincoln’s birthday and Black History Month with activities that include a read-a-thon, two days of free admission and a play about a daring escape from slavery.

“February was first chosen for Black History Month in part because it included Lincoln’s birthday,” said Christina Shutt, library and museum executive director . “You can’t fully honor Lincoln without acknowledging his impact on African Americans and, in turn, their essential role in building this nation.” For more information see the January 31, 2023 edition of The Greenville Advocate.
