Celebrate Black History Month and the upcoming Academy Awards ceremony with “A salute to classic black stars of Hollywood,” at the Wareham Free Library, 59 Marion Road, on Monday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m.

Meet some of the talented black men and women who staarred in Hollywood motion pictures throughout the 20th century. Discover their stories both on and off the big screen, as behind the scenes, black actors and actresses demanded more respectable roles and fought to close the income gap between black and white performers, forging a path for the many black actors and actresses who came after them. 

The program is free, with no registration required. It is sponsored by the Friends of the Wareham Free Library. 

The Library closes at 5 p.m. on Mondays; doors to the presentation will open at 6:30 p.m.
