Black History Art Contest

Stop by the Children's Services department to see the wonderful art in our display cases.

The Fort Wayne African/African American Historical Society held the Black History Art Contest for children in April of last year. The contest's focus was African American inventors and researchers who have made landmark contributions to the scientific advancement of society. The keyboard, the pencil sharpener, the lawn mower, the cell phone and the traffic light are just some of the inventions of African Americans interpreted by the students' artwork. All area public, private, parochial schools and youth centers and clubs were invited to participate.
We are thrilled to have this art on display!
