African-American Cultural Series

We are planning a month long cultural celebration in June to celebrate Black Music Month where we are going to host a series of musical performances, art workshops, motivational speakers, authors, and dance performances in our mosaic building all free to the community.


Some of our featured presentations include:

* Two-time Olympic Medalist, Hollis Conway, to lead a motivational workshop
* Art Workshops led by renowned artists, Virgie Banks, Adrian Fulton and Bobette Castille
* African-American Authors, Andrea Wren, Theresa Singleton and 7 year old Loren Bellows, to read excerpts from  their  books and lead discussions
* Dr. Jennifer Jackson, from UL’s Diversity Program to lead a motivational workshop
* A performance by Ms. Grace Hamilton (from Alvin Ailey) and the dance troupe from Hamilton School for the Arts
* Musical performances by many area musicians including Creole Historian and Fiddler D’Jalma Garnier, Zydeco/blues/jazz great, Major Handy
* And more!


The goal of this series is to inspire at-risk children and less fortunate families that may not have the means to recognize or foster a talent / gift.  Our hope is that if the financial barrier is removed that some of these children can discover their gift and flourish by using their talent to better their lives.


Full performance schedule coming soon!
