Black History Month at Hagley Museum

The Hagley Museum and Library will kick off Black History Month on Tuesday with a lecture titled "Madam C. J. Walker: Her Formula for Success." Walker, an early-20th-century businesswoman, founded the first firm to specialize in cosmetics for African-American women. A'Leila Bundles, the great-great granddaughter of Walker, will present the lecture.

The museum will also offer a February exhibit titled "Pierre S. du Pont and African-American Education in Delaware." The exhibit will examine du Pont's philanthropy programs in the African-American community and the response of community to them. Programming related to the exhibit includes a book signing, a video premiere and school programs.

The lecture will be held 7 p.m. Tuesday; the exhibit runs through Feb. 29. Both take place at the Hagley Museum and Library, Buck Road East off Route 100, Wilmington, Del. Free, but reservations are required. Call 302-658-2400.
