Please join me in celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation by attending the 12th Annual African American Cultural Celebration this Saturday! Come and see some of my latest work and pick up a FREE bookmark (see below).
I will also be selling prints and hoping to meet more people with Stagville connections. The Museum has kindly put my stand next to that of the official Historic Stagville where there will be great activities.
I hope to see you there!
There will be lots to see and do. Here is the information from the NC Museum of History’s website. Please click on the links to go directly to their site.
Saturday, Jan. 26 10:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
Join us for the statewide kickoff to Black History Month and celebrate North Carolina’s diverse African American heritage and culture! This year’s theme, Defining Freedom, honors the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. Over 75 musicians, storytellers, dancers, historians, playwrights, authors, artists, reenactors, chefs, teachers, scholars, and other presenters will help tell the rich and varied stories of our state. It’s educational and fun for the whole family. For more information, call Emily Grant at 919-807-7979 or visit ncmuseumofhistory.org.
This program is supported by the North Carolina African American Heritage Commission; the North Carolina Museum of History Associates; the Raleigh Arts Commission; and the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County, with funds from the United Arts campaign as well as the North Carolina Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes a great nation deserves great art.
