Smith Memorial Playground’s Leaders and Legends Black History Month exhibit is back for its fourth year. The exhibit opens to the public on Tuesday, February 6, at 10 am. This free, family-friendly exhibit honors the contributions of local African American leaders across a wide range of fields, including fields whose impact has made Philly a better place to live, work, grow, and play. The exhibit is made up of educational displays focusing on each honoree’s life and achievements and includes a kid-friendly scavenger hunt. The exhibit will be open for outdoor viewing all month long.
