Leaders and Legends of North Philadelphia Exhibition
Smith is pleased to announce its inaugural Leaders and Legends of North Philadelphia Black History Month exhibition which celebrates 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. The exhibition will be open for free outdoor, socially distanced viewing on Smith’s property in East Fairmount Park from February 6 through February 28, with a family-friends "Opening Day Hooray!" on Saturday, February 6.
