February is Black History Month, and there is a special exhibit featured at the Museum of North Texas.

Organizers say this year’s exhibit is focusing on local history, including the story of Willie Faye Battle, who was part of one of the landmark national desegregation cases.

The exhibit also showcases rarely seen photos of the Eastside community, and local achievements in the military and athletics.

The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Admission is free, and group and school tours are encouraged.

During the month of February, you can watch Journey: 450 Years of the African American Experience on our website.
