Living History Museum Brings African American Heroes to Life

Twenty-seven enthusiastic students from grades K through 8 participated in the Living History Museum of African American Heroes at the Peninsula Center Library on February 22 and 25. This marks the eighth year that the library has hosted this event, in which the students portray the African Americans who inspire them. In addition to the child historian/actors, 9 teen docents--many of whom were once participants themselves--were on hand to help the students and serve as guides for the museum.

PVLD and The Friends of the Library are grateful to the co-sponsers: Palos Verdes Chapter of the Links, Inc., The Black Heritage Association, The Rolling Hills/Palos Verdes Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and the SLA Chapter of Jack & Jill.
