African-American History Month celebrated at the NARA

From Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, the following announcement from the National Archives and Records Administration was posted:

WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 -- The National Archives will celebrate African-American History Month in February with special films, public programs, book talks, and lectures, including a special event on the legacy of John Hope Franklin. These events are free and open to the public and will be held at the National Archives Building in Washington, D.C., and at the National Archives at College Park, Maryland.

Visitors to the William G. McGowan Theater should enter at the Special Events entrance at Constitution Ave. and 7th St., NW.
