Macy’s and Black History

Macy's is one of very few department stores that celebrate Black History Month and this year is no different. Select Macy's across the country are preparing to salute rising icons of African American culture! Macy's recognizes that African American actors, artists and performers have been commanding the spotlight for decades, but the newest generation of trendsetters is in a class all its own. I will be attending the “In Conversation” with actress Jurnee Smollet-Bell and singer Monica in Center City Philadelphia on February 4th at 5:30 PM.
