Blythewood to celebrate Black History Month Feb. 26 & 27

BLYTHEWOOD – Blythewood will celebrate Black History Month on Feb. 26 & 27 with an event beginning in the historic gymnasium at Bethel-Hanberry Elementary school and culminating with a community program at Doko Meadows.

Sponsored by the Blythewood Historical Society, this year’s theme will be ‘Honoring the Legacy & Heritage of Bethel-Hanberry High School 1946-1970 & Beyond.’

The community and especially former students, faculty and any other employees who were a part of Bethel-Hanberry school during the years from 1946 to 1970 (and beyond), are invited to join us as we commemorate and celebrate this iconic educational institution for black students in Blythewood.
