February is Black History Month in the United States, and Queens is teeming with related activities. In just the upcoming week, the borough will host a tour of African-American cultural venues, movie screenings, live jazz, a panel discussion on the TV series Roots, a concert and a display of African-American art by MoMA. Other activities include a mime, a murder mystery/five-course dinner and a lecture on Astoria. Here’s the rundown.
The Queens Tourism Council produces the It’s In Queens! column with the hope that readers will enjoy the borough’s wonderful attractions.
