Black History Month Day of Celebration 

February 3 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Franklin Institute Celebrates Black History Month  

From inspirational pioneers in engineering to courageous trailblazers in space, TFI celebrates the influential contributions of Black scientists, innovators, and engineers, both past and present.

Throughout the month, images of notable African American achievers in science, including Astronaut Guion Bluford and NASA Mathematician Katherine Johnson, as well as Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts and other local Philadelphians currently making waves in the fields of science, technology, mathematics, and medicine, will rotate on the screens in Franklin Hall.

Join for a day of celebration in recognition of Black History Month. Special programming includes a lively performance of traditional West African and Afro-Cuban dances by Philly African Dance and Drum Ensemble Troupe Da Da, where guests will have the opportunity to learn some of their dance techniques. Performance begins at 2:00 pm in the Atrium on Floor 2.
