Apple will be marking Black History Month via its stores in the United States, with a number of Today at Apple sessions scheduled to take place throughout February to celebrate culture, by showing how people can use an iPhone or iPad to create new works.
Running from February 1 until February 29, the Today at Apple collection page for Black History Month tells of sessions where customers can "learn from dynamic creators who are changing cultural narratives through visual arts, photography, poetry, dance, film, and more."
As part of the celebration, seven stores across the United States will be playing host to special events throughout the month. The events will vary between locations, but will cover similar general areas and tools within each of the Photo, Video, Music, and Art Labs.
Events will be taking place at Apple Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY; Apple Michigan Avenue in Chicago, IL; Apple Fifth Avenue in New York City, NY; Apple Aventura in Miami, FL; Apple Union Square in San Francisco, CA; Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, CA; and Apple Carnegie Library in Washington, D.C.
Standout sessions on offer include a performance by Kev Choice at Apple Union Square on February 7, and a Photo Lab on February 6 at Apple Carnegie Library, where Amarachi Nwosu will teach visitors to explore color by editing photographs. An exclusive session titled Poetic Mindfulness will take place at Apple Aventura on February 8, with author Mahogany L. Browne teaching the exploration of poetry via the Notes app.
Today at Apple sessions are free to attend, but require registration beforehand via the Apple Store app.
