Public Library’s Black History Month Programs

| January 30, 2012 | 1 Comment

Native South African Lesole Maine and his dance troupe return to the Anne Arundel County Public Library for the first time since 2008 to help celebrate Black History Month.

Appearing at seven County libraries during the month of February, the show offers a fun, fast-paced and fascinating look at traditional and modern African dance styles.

The show encompasses three dance experiences: traditional Zulu/tribal dance, Gumboot (which originated in the gold mines of South Africa) and modern social/hip-hop dance known as Pantsula

By recognizing that even within the African continent, Western, Eastern, Northern and Southern traditions vary, Maine also honors the diversity of our community and strives to forge a deeper understanding and acceptance among people of different backgrounds and cultural traditions.

Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. The programs are free and appropriate for all ages.

All shows begin at 7 p.m.

  • February 2 — Crofton Branch
  • February 6 — Maryland City Branch
  • February 14 — Annapolis Branch
  • February 21 — West County Branch
  • February 23 — 23 Eastport Branch
  • February 27 — North County Branch
  • February 28 — Severna Park Branch
