The main event during the celebration, which surrounds the Penguins matchup with the Philadelphia Flyers, is the NHL’s Black Hockey History mobile museum. That museum on wheels is a part of the NHL’s Black Hockey History Tour – celebrating black achievement in hockey by looking back at history makers and Stanley Cup champions and looking ahead to the next generation of stars.
The mobile museum will be making a mid-day stop at Miller African Centered Academy in the Hill District for private tours by the students. The museum will then move to Logan Avenue across from PPG Paints Arena and be open to the public free of charge from 4-7 p.m.
More info on the event can be found on the Penguins website.
