Every year the Madison Public Library spends the month of February celebrating Black History Month with a series of events and this year is no exception.

The Black History Month Kickoff with Fabu, the first event of the series, will be held at the Goodman South Madison Library on Friday, February 5th at 6:30 pm. Fabu has been a jewel in our community for many years.  She is a former Poet Laureate and is a columnist, storyteller, and educator.  The celebration will continue throughout the month of February with poetry readings, film screenings, black story time, and African folklore!
