If you’re looking for free things to do in Houston, you may as well mix in an educational experience! February marks Black History Month, and the Holocaust Museum Houston is celebrating! We may still be in quarantine; however, Black History Month 2021 virtual events are allowing the public to partake in this integral celebration. 

One of the Black History Month events in Houston is the Holocaust Museum Houston’s free virtual program. This schedule is made up of Zoom meetings, which are free and open to the public. With this feature, the museum is brought to you — all you’ll need to do is sign in! 

The eight meetings will cover a wide variety of topics, discussions, and formats. From an all-ages storytime to adult book discussions, there is plenty to be discovered within these Zoom rooms. The Holocaust Museum Houston is even conducting a Zoom film screening, with the documentary “13th” as its focus.

It’s imperative that we celebrate African American History Month not only just through February, but all year-round. Through its easy-t0-access and engaging virtual programming, the Holocaust Museum Houston offers a great way to start. 

If you’re interested in checking out the schedule of these live virtual events, please visit the Holocaust Museum Houston’s website. On there, you’ll also find Holocaust Museum Houston hours for in-person tours and visitation. 

The city of Houston is full of opportunities for self-education and community growth. By visiting the city’s vast number of public museums, either in-person or through free online events, you’re sure to take home something new with you every time.
