Black History Month reminds us that all Americans must shine a light on injustice.
Black History Month is often embraced as a celebration of African-American pioneers, trailblazers, activists and inventors who overcame dire odds and obstacles to accomplish great feats. Sometimes their stories become chapters that are easily inserted into American history books without reminding America of its sordid past – one marked with barbaric treatment of Black people that has left an indelible stain on the fabric of the American family.

This year, the Capitol Arts Complex Black History Month program will focus on art, activities and cultural aspects of the Black community, many of which have evolved because of the past efforts and struggle.
The Nina Simone documentary “What Happened, Miss Simone” follows the real life of a true artist and activist. Also screening that evening is a short documentary about the life of Hazel Scott-an incredible story of an early 20th Century musician that has been all but forgotten.
Our Kids Day features activities that are aimed to include all children. Like, a visit by the Utica Zoomobile animals, to a game show trivia contest and a real green screen TV news set that children can present the weather and sports with a teleprompter.
Our Final weekend closes with live jazz in our art gallery featuring the Doc Woods Quartet from Hamilton College and the defining documentary about Blue Note Records-possibly the most important collection of music by legendary Black musicians.
Our Black History Month is a bit different from the traditional , but it is not a replacement- but an extension.
