Black History Month Finale Program

Two groups of acclaimed local musicians – the choir of First Missionary Baptist Church, led by Dr. Janette Kotey, and the St. Bartley Primitive Baptist Church Praise Choir, led by Deacon Courtney Moore – will perform in concert on Saturday, Feb. 27, at 7 p.m. in the Atrium of the Downtown Huntsville Library. This event is the finale of our Black History Month Extravaganza, happening that day from 3 to 8:30 p.m.

The program begins at 3 p.m. with a learning opportunity in Youth Services. Children – adults, too – can find out more about black inventors at several Inventors Stations, each one featuring a hands-on activity.

Starting at 5:15 p.m., praise dancers from Progressive Union Missionary Baptist Church will perform. Then Willie Smith will read Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. At 6 p.m., Frances Dillard will present an African Attire fashion show. Various authors and vendors will be on site and Reggie Lewis will be our master of ceremonies.

The Black History Month Celebration Finale is presented by TaxCorp.
