Every February we celebrate Black History Month—a time to reflect, celebrate and honor the achievements of African Americans. What was originally “Negro History Week,” turned into a month-long celebration of Black history because DUH!

Before I start bragging about my heritage, here’s how you can observe the month in Birmingham and around Alabama.
This year’s Sidewalk Film Festival looks a bit different. To allow for social distancing, the festival is being held at the Grand River Drive-In in Leeds.

If you’ve never made it on the big screen, now is your chance! A Birmingham film is on the hunt for extras to be in a party scene on February 8. Find out more about “Garden of the Gods,” a movie produced by a local Birmingham production company.
The Pizitz is one of my favorite places in Birmingham. It’s amazing how much there is to do inside one historic building. You can live and work, enjoy great food and drinks in The Pizitz Food Hall, indulge in some shopping and even see a movie at the newly opened Sidewalk Film Center & Cinema. Pick a film and get your tickets.
