Ohio Statehouse features events during black history month

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Statehouse is featuring several Black History Month events in February including an art exhibit and historical presentations.

"The Power of One" is an elementary student art exhibit with works based on students describing what they would do if asked to take on something courageous like Rosa Parks refusing to give up her bus seat.

The exhibit will be in the Statehouse map room on the first level.

Each Tuesday at noon in the Statehouse Atrium, visitors can meet interpreters portraying black history makers such as black Civil War soldiers and women who participated in the Civil Rights movement.

Events are free and open to the public.
