Celebrate Black History Month with a museum-wide, day-long collection of family-friendly performances and workshops at the National Museum of American History. The day's highlights begin at 11 a.m. with a genealogy activity for kids. At 11:30 a.m., 2 and 4 p.m., audiences can take part in interactive training sessions to prepare for a sit-in during the civil rights movement at the actual Woolworth's lunch counter from Greensboro, N.C. At 1, 3 and 5 p.m. hear the musical program "Sing for Freedom" about freedom songs in the civil rights movement. Author Andrew Pinkney signs copies of the children's book "Sit-In" from 1-1:30 p.m., and at 1:30 p.m., kids can see the puppet show "Can You Spell Harlem?"
Visitors can also explore the rest of the museum's exhibitions, including "The Scurlock Studio and Black Washington: Picturing the Promise," a photography exhibition containing a century's worth of scenes from Washington's African American community.
