To celebrate Black History Month, Historic Stagville and Morehead Planetarium will present a stellar program that focuses on the astronomy and night sky myths and legends told in African cultures, as well as the related stories told by scientists today. The program will begin with storytelling and after that, guests will peer through telescopes for a constellation tour looking at the same stars as our ancestors. In case of inclement weather, the program will take place entirely in the visitor center.

This event is perfect for kids and families. Meet in the Visitor Center and then head outside to use telescopes on the grounds.
