Month With Exciting Performances and Engaging Programing Don’t miss some of these unique and exciting programs in honor of Black History Month.

The communities of Crest Hill, Lockport, and Romeoville will have their choice of unique events such as the Taste of Africa on Feb, 15th, featuring music and samples of various foods from Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, and Senegal, as well as more educational options such as the, Exploring African American History program.
