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.

Ms. Taylor is President of the Georgetown Citizens and Cultural Memorial Association (GCCMA), which exists to educate, preserve, and celebrate African American history and culture. GCCMA fulfills its mission by partnering with religious, educational, civic and other organizations to provide for the youth of all citizens in Georgetown, Texas.
