Opening Day Hooray! Leaders and Legends of Philadelphia

February 4 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On Saturday, Feb. 4, from 12–1 pm, families throughout the region and distinguished guests will kick off Black History Month at Smith Memorial Playground with the “Opening Day Hooray” of the third annual exhibition Leaders and Legends of Philadelphia. The Playhouse and the Playground remain open for play until 4pm. Elected officials and honorees will make remarks around 12 pm.

Leaders and Legends of Philadelphia is an exhibition celebrating inspirational African American leaders who have made momentous, positive change in the fields of activism, arts, business, education, public service, and sports, and have become a part of North Philadelphia’s history. Bring the family out to see displays of each honoree which include biographical information, highlighted facts for caregivers to “Quiz the Kids”, and suggested Philadelphia landmarks, activities, and reading dedicated to or inspired by each honoree that families can explore after they leave Smith.

The “Opening Day Hooray” will feature distinguished guests including Mayor Jim Kenney, Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, Rep. Donna Bullock, Council Member Kendra Brooks, Natasha Brown (CBS-3), Derrick Pitts (Franklin Institute), and Dr. Khalid Mumin (Acting Secretary, PA Department of Education).
