Independent Lens: More Than a Month
Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2017 6:30 p.m.

I am part of a local ad hoc committee trying to coordinate community activities for the month. Other activities planned so far include a presentation by a local minister on the history of gospel music (with performances), and a community dinner. This might be a good opportunity to reach out to churches and other organizations to create a community-based celebration of unity.

I'm wondering what kinds of programs/speakers you've had for African American History Month? Looking for ideas.

Thank you.
