Local Black history exhibit on display at The Commons

A new black history exhibit will be displayed in The Commons through February in recognition of Black History Month.

The exhibit “And Still We Rise” is meant to give a comprehensive overview of the history of African Americans in Columbus. Organizers say it documents the local Black community’s resilience, perseverance, faith and love.

An unveiling of the exhibit, remarks from the program manager for Black History Month in Columbus and a reading of a proclamation declaring Black History Month here by the mayor, will happen at a ceremony starting at 4 p.m. this afternoon at The Commons.

The event is free and you are invited to attend.
