Visit Haggard Library during February and see two art exhibits showcasing African American art and culture and a program on the history of jazz.
The photographic exhibition Black Art - Ancestral Legacy: The African Impulse in African American Art addresses the question posed by African American poet Countee Cullen in 1926: “What is Africa to Me?”
The exhibit A Place for All People is on loan from the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. The exhibit surveys the African American community’s powerful, deep, and lasting contributions to the American story.
On February 4 at 3:00 pm Rochelle Rabouin and Stewart Shelton will present a quick timeline – Boitumelo: History of Jazz in America from its roots in Africa to its landing in New Orleans and beyond. During the performance, the audience will construct a JAZZ COLLAGE to be hung in the library.
