A Black History Month museum at Canal Street Recreation Center offers an in-depth look at struggles and successes of African-Americans through the years.  Displays cover topics such as slavery, the fight for freedom and the civil rights movement.  Also featured are inventors, athletes, artists and musicians who happen to be black.  African-American inventors were responsible for many items we know well, including the carbon filament used in light bulbs, an early version of the clothes dryer, the hole punch, the gas mask, the typewriter, the rotary lawnmower, improvements to the smoke detector, roll toilet paper and the electric traffic signal.  The museum is on display through February.  Call Canal Street Recreation Center at 918-1465 for more information.
