Black History Heroes Day

February 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Stand tall and proud to celebrate Black History Month with AAMP’s first youth costume party. On Sunday, February 18th, AAMP invites our youngest audience members (13 and below) to help share the excellence of history by dressing as their favorite figure in Black History.

Christopher Miller, the Executive Vice President, will close the day with a dramatic reading of one of his favorite picture books about the father of Black History Month, Carter G. Woodson. Carter Reads the Newspaper chronicles Woodson’s early life. As the child of parents who had been enslaved, it angered Woodson that their lives were not included in schoolbooks. While working in the coal mines, Woodson was asked to read the newspaper to his fellow miners who could not read. This remarkable picture book captures the life of one of our most important American scholars.

During the celebration in the auditorium, youth are welcome to join the Wax Museum Activity, where they can strike a pose dressed as their favorite figure in history and tell guests a few fun facts about themselves.

Included with General Admission. Free for AAMP Members!
