Commemorating Black History Month at the CSPM

February is Black History Month and the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum (CSPM) is proud to tell Black history every day because Colorado Springs history is Black history and Black history is Colorado Springs history. 

“We want everyone to explore Black History at the CSPM all year round through our exhibits, programs and virtual galleries. During this special month, we are looking forward to sharing with the community more stories and providing opportunities for them to delve deeper. ”

Leah Davis Witherow, CSPM Curator of History

The CSPM features stories in our permanent galleries: Any Place That is North & WestThe Story of UsCOS@150, and online through our innovative Story of Us Mobile website that documents how African Americans have continued to shape the Pikes Peak region socially, politically, intellectually, culturally, and economically

For Black History Month 2022, the public is invited to engage with these community stories through special guided tours, public programs, and social media.
