Join the Planning Department and the Georgetown Public Library in celebrating Black History Month! To tie into this year’s national theme of Black History Month “The Black Family: Representation, Identity, Diversity”, we will be joined by special guest Paulette Taylor for “Representation, Identify and Diversity Celebrated in Georgetown’s Track-Ridge-Grasshopper Neighborhood”. The Track-Ridge-Grasshopper Neighborhood has been home to members of Georgetown’s African-American community for more than 150 years, and we invite you to learn more about the neighborhood’s history as well as other community celebrations for Black History Month.
