The Historical Society of Forest Park (HSFP) is very honored to have the opportunity to work with Forest Park Against Racism, Midwest Juneteenth Collective, and the Forest Park Public Library on our first annual “Forest Park Celebrates Black History Month Sunday Series.” We are so proud to have been able to offer five unique programs. HSFP looks forward to February 2022, when we can host in-person programming to expand on these topics and activities.
Black History Month is a great way to recognize and celebrate Black History. But, as we know, Black History happens year-round. We have added the first portion of an online exhibit to our website dedicated to the Black history of Forest Park. We welcome input from the community on people and topics to add to this section.
We hope to see everyone at Juneteenth in whatever form Forest Park celebrates this year.
