North Andover Celebrates Black History Month

February is Black History Month and this year the Town has partnered with the North Parish Racial Justice Team and the North Andover Historical Society on a project to educate residents and celebrate the diversity in our past.

Artwork for a series of banners was commissioned from Elevated Thought, with each banner acknowledging and celebrating the contribution of an African American with local, regional or state connection.

For 2022 banners are on display around town at municipal buildings and other public places.  Check out the interactive map for an educational scavenger hunt!  While you are out and about, snap a picture of the QR code posted with each banner to be directed to a short biography about each person, or visit the Biographies page.  See the schedule of events for happenings throughout the month. Starting in 2023 banners will be displayed around the Common each February.
