History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community's past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will honor the contributions and creativity of our African American community during its annual Black History Month celebration. This year's events will include a Dillard Center for the Arts' Advanced Placement (AP) student exhibition and sale with an opportunity to meet the artists and guest curator/instructor Celestin Joseph on Sunday, February 2, from 1 - 3 p.m.

In addition to History Fort Lauderdale's annual Black History Month celebration, visitors of all ages will enjoy the new "The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale" permanent exhibit which allows guests to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, "Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano," a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus "Archaeology of the New River" and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale. The nonprofit museum also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting Caribbean, Latinx and women artists sharing their views of history.

Entry to the show and sale is free with general admission - $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is always free for members, military and children ages six and under.
