“Harlem Grooves” Program Comes To Manchester Branch

On Saturday, February 28 at 2:00 pm Key Arts Productions will share their dynamic presentation about the blossoming of African American culture during the “roaring twenties” era at the Manchester Branch of the Ocean County Library. Embracing literary, musical, theatrical, and visual arts, many creative individuals like Cab Callaway, Duke Ellington, Langston Hughes, and Zora Neal Hurston laid the groundwork for all later African American literature and had an enormous impact on subsequent black literature and consciousness worldwide. While the renaissance was not confined to the Harlem district of New York City, 1920s Harlem attracted a remarkable concentration of intellect and talent and served as the symbolic capital of this cultural awakening. Harlem Grooves celebrates this most influential movement in African American history through live musical performances, fun commentary, video projections and more!

This free Black History Month program is sponsored by the Ocean County Library Foundation as part of the Ocean County Library’s 90th Anniversary “Decades Celebration.” It is open to all ages. Please pre-register online at http://www.theoceancountylibrary.org or call (732) 657-7600.

The Manchester Branch of the Ocean County Library is located at 21 Colonial Drive in Manchester Township.
