SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – This Black History Month the Suffolk Public Library will offer virtual programs and contests for all ages to celebrate Black history, achievements, and excellence.
The City of Suffolk said the programs will start Monday, Feb. 1, and will end on Sunday, Feb. 28.
Children and families of all ages can enjoy a weekly family story time celebrating Black history and programs about Black comic creators and scientists.

For adults, the library will offer programs exploring Black Musicality, Hip-Hop, African American genealogy, Black business ownership, current events, and more.
Participants can also complete a genealogy BINGO card for a chance to win a DNA testing kit and also enter to win gift cards from locally owned Black businesses.
