February is Black History Month and the Midwest City Library, 8143 E. Reno, will pay honor with its 3rd Annual Celebration of Black History and Culture on Sunday, February 13, from 2:00 to 4:00p.m.
“This is annually one of our most popular events,” said Midwest City Library manager Chris Kennedy. “We’re pleased that we can give the community a place where people can gather to talk things over, reminisce, and look to the future.”
Kennedy said that this year’s celebration will present aspects of African American culture through the spoken word, dance, song and books.
The program is free and suitable for everyone. Call 732-4828 with questions. For more information about this or any Metropolitan Library System program, visit the MLS website, www.metrolibrary.org.
