Interactive workshop for the whole family featuring hands-on activities, examination of primary sources, and a screening of History Making Productions' Octavius V. Catto: A Legacy for the 21st Century followed by a discussion led by local Catto experts. Octavius V. Catto was a 19th century civil rights activist, scholar, athlete, and community leader. In September 2017 a coalition of community activists, scholars, and public servants had the joy of dedicating a memorial at City Hall to this local hero, making him the first individual African American to be honored with a statue on public land in Philadelphia.
