HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

February is often considered the “month of love.” We hope you take some time this month to feel the love in your life and be grateful for the source of that affection. The ancient Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu, reminds us that “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

Black History Month

Every February, the U.S. pays tribute to the contributions and sacrifices of African Americans who have helped shape the nation. Black History Month was first officially recognized by President Gerald Ford in 1976. Ford challenged the American people to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Here are 81 new and upcoming books to discover this Black History Month.

Forgotten Foundations: Louisville’s Lost Architecture

Downtown became a hub for many businesses in a post-Civil War boom. Grand buildings with intricate architectural details were a visual symbol of Louisville’s growing economic power. But as people and businesses relocated to the suburbs, downtown saw a major decline. This exhibit, at the Filson Historical Society, recalls what was lost through architectural and photographic records left behind. Today revitalization efforts have the potential to create a thriving downtown that is once again the heart of the city. Feb. 18-Sept. 23. https://filsonhistorical.org/visit/exhibits/
