Black History Month

In the United States, the month of February is observed as Black History Month and we use the month to remember the important contributions and achievements of African Americans throughout our nation's history. We celebrate Black History Month with a variety of programs, events, and displays for children, teens, adults, and families.

Events in 2021 are provided in collaboration with Iowa City Parks and Recreation. Participation in a program entitles you to a ten-punch swim pass! Collect anytime during February from Parks and Recreation by reserving at 319-356-5100. Lap swim is for 12-years and older.
