Culture & Arts Festival: An African American Odyssey
March 9 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Featured on March 9 will be the Northwest Tap Connection telling the rich story of African American History through song, dance, and spoken word. With a mosaic of movement, performers from the all-ages dance company will interpret the economic, social, political, artistic, and racial imprints that have cultivated the black experience in American culture.
Visitors will also experience an outstanding trio of musicians tracing the history of Blues and Jazz in the performance of Blues Queens and Jazz Royalty featuring Joseph Seamons, Tina Dietz, and Forrest Marowitz.
The festival will include storytellers, art projects for children, and exhibits including:
• The Art of Jacob Lawrence and other African American artists
• The artifacts of Dr. Warner Karshner
We invite all to join us for the free-family event.
