Community College of Philadelphia kicked off its annual Black History Month programming under the theme titled “The Message Has Always Been in Our Music” and is exploring the ways in which music has shaped Black culture, identity, and survival.  

 Programming so far has included a curated reading list and video library, as well as a keynote address from Professor James Small, which explored the musicology of the African diaspora. A candid conversation with Professor Tracey Lewis-Giggetts on her new book, “Black Joy: A Strategy for Resistance, Resilience, and Restoration” will take place February 28.

 All events are free and open to the public.
