ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — February is the month we celebrate Black History. News10NBC honors the significant contributions African Americans have made to the Rochester area and our country and celebrates the present (and the future) of Black culture.

However, like so many other gatherings, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to modifications and some cancellations to annual events. Here’s how Rochester-area organizations and institutions plan to celebrate Black History Month in 2021.

If your organization is holding a Black History Month event, please email the information to news1@whec.com for it to be added to this list. 

Feb. 26

Black Toys & Toymakers: The Story of Shindana - The Strong National Museum of Play hosts the 40-minute virtual discussion starting at 1 p.m. Learn the story of Shindana Toys’ creation and evolution, their role in the community, their products, and examples of Black entrepreneurship. Price: Suggested donation of $10. Registration required.
