Reflections, a Black History Month exhibit at the Petaluma Historical Library and Museum, runs Thursday, Feb. 8 through Sunday, Feb. 25.
“This year is a kind of special, because it’s our 40th year doing these events,” says Faith Ross, the exhibit’s curator and the founder of Petaluma Blacks for Community Development. “This year, with the theme “Reflections,” we’re looking back at what has happened over the years. That’s looking back to 1978, when we started doing these exhibits and events, with everything between then and now, but also looking back the 1800s, and the first back people to make Petaluma their home.”
In addition to the ongoing Black History Month exhibit, there are events including a children’s story time, an evening program and a gospel hour.
