Honoring Black History Month – Portrait Exhibit Blair-Caldwell DPL Branch

In honor of Black History Month, the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame (CWHF) is displaying inductee portraits at the Blair-Caldwell Denver Public Library Branch.

The exhibit opens January 23 and ends February 28, 2017

  • Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African-Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African-Americans in U.S. history.
  • In Colorado, visionary and trail-blazing women of color from the past and present are honored through this exhibit for their connection and contribution to shaping the state.  CWHF’s inductee portraits bring greater recognition and awareness of Colorado’s great women, past and present.
  • Too often, society has overlooked the accomplishments of women. CWHF’s vision is to serve as the leading resource of exciting, dynamic stories of women acting as agents of change for girls and women in society.

Celebrate the extraordinary African-American women of
Colorado throughout the month of February.

The Blair-Caldwell Denver Public Library is located at 2401 Welton St., Denver, CO 80205.  For more information, go to https://history.denverlibrary.org/blair


About the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame:

The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame was created to recognize, honor and preserve the contributions of trailblazing Colorado women. Both historical and contemporary women have shared foresight, vision and accomplishment, but lacked a forum for recognition. Since 1985, the Hall has inducted 152 extraordinary women who have been outstanding in their field, elevated the status of women, helped open new frontiers for women or inspired others by their example. Inductees include scientists, teachers, social activists, philanthropists, authors, business leaders, elected officials and more.
