February is Black History Month in the United States, and two Corona venues are participating in the NYC 5 Boro Passport to Culture Tour. Visitors to the Louis Armstrong House Museum and the Langston Hughes Community Library & Cultural Center can simply check in at each site and pick up a gift from Applebee’s. (Mention promo code NYCbhm for 10% off a meal purchase.) While supplies last, each Armstrong House guest will receive a rare 1931 photograph of Satchmo in New Orleans. An excerpt from the jazz legend’s own, never-before-published manuscript is printed on the reverse. Langston Hughes Library visitors can check out New York City’s largest circulating Black Heritage reading collection with roughly 40,000 volumes of material about Black Culture. In the other boroughs, the participating sites are the African Burial Ground National Monument, MoCADA, Harlem’s National Jazz Museum, Sandy Ground Historical Society Museum, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Weeksville Heritage Center and the Woodlawn Conservancy.
