Each February, Black History Month provides opportunities to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of men and women of African descent who have significantly contributed to our world. Media Fellowship House presents programming which tells stories, illustrate skills and talents, and engage our participants to think and rethink heritage.
Through the use of music and dance, historical presentations and discussions as well as trips to museums and theaters, Media Fellowship House hopes to bring our community together with the goal of learning about and appreciating the wonderful accomplishments of our brothers and sisters with African ancestry.
Among past programs we have held in observance of Black History Month are: a trip for young people to see the play “Sojourner” at Hedgerow Theatre; a presentation at MFH by the Traveling Black History Museum; a talk by historian Nancy Webster on the Underground Railroad’s activities and impact in and around Delaware County; and separate trip for a youth group to the African American Museum in Philadelphia.
Media resident Dr. Sam Lemon is a MFH friend, resource and frequent speaker who has presented talks about his family history, their escape from slavery and settlement in Media;
“Harriet Tubman” has appeared via historic re-enactor Dr. Daisy Century. Our audience was captivated by the lively and dramatic portrayal of Tubman, the noted abolitionist and “conductor” on the Underground Railroad.
