KIRO 7 Black History Month
KIRO 7 is proud to celebrate Black History Month. February is dedicated to honoring the achievements of African Americans who contributed to shaping the nation's past, present, and future.

This month we encourage you to continue discussing Black history in Washington State and learn more at places like the Northwest African American Museum (NAAM) in Seattle. NAAM features visual arts, music, crafts, literature, and the history of African Americans in the Northwest. In addition, they provide a gathering place highlighting hope, help, and healing.
