For the first time ever, Hermann will celebrate Black History Month. Its story of black and German allyship, however, dates to before the Civil War

The town will celebrate its story on February 29 with lectures, jazz performances, and lots of conversations that will explore the shared history of Hermann’s German immigrant and African American ancestors.
