The Carver Museum in East Austin is rolling out a month of programming for Black History Month, celebrating activists, educators and more.

Driving the news: The museum has partnered with local artists, businesses and organizations to offer interactive programs highlighting this year's theme, "Black Resistance."

Details: The month of events kicks off at 7pm Wednesday at the Paramount Theatre for a conversation with Black scholar and revolutionary Angela Davis, and on Thursday, the Carver will host "Create and Heal: The Art of Drumming" with master drummer Armando Martin.

The bottom line: Most events are free and open to the public and can be found online.
