In honor of Black History Month 2020, the National Hockey League (NHL) has announced the return of the NHL Black Hockey History Tour presented by American Legacy for a second season. This uniquely curated mobile museum will visit Detroit’s Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and Little Caesars Arena on Jan. 18 and 19 to celebrate today’s stars, while also looking back at the pioneers and trailblazers who helped shape NHL history.

  • Every black player in history represented throughout the museum.
  • Team locker room: every stop will have a customized NHL locker room giving fans the opportunity to sit in a stall to take a photo.
