Public Library’s Black History Month Programs

| January 30, 2012, 01:51 PM | 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

    Keep history alive by telling that history:

    Read the greatest ‘historical novel’, Rescue at Pine Ridge, the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers. The website is: http://www.rescueatpineridge.com This is the greatest story of Black Military History…5 stars Amazon Internationally, and Barnes & Noble. Youtube commercials are: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iD66NUKmZPs and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVslyHmDy9A&feature=related

    Rescue at Pine Ridge is the story of the rescue of the famed 7th Cavalry by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers. The 7th Cavalry was entrapped again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn’t for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry. This story is about, brutality, compassion, reprisal, bravery, heroism, redemption and gallantry.

    You’ll enjoy the novel that embodies the Native Americans, Outlaws and African-American/Black soldiers, from the south to the north, in the days of the Native American Wars with the approaching United States of America.

    The novel was taken from my mini-series movie with the same title, “RaPR” to keep the story alive. The movie so far has the interest of, Mr. Bill Duke, Hill Harper, Glynn Turman, James Whitmore Jr., Reginald T. Dorsey and a host of other major actors in which we are in talks with, in starring in this epic American story.

    When you get a chance, also please visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at; http://www.alphawolfprods.com and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for the US Postal System in Montana, in the 1890’s, “spread the word”.

    Peace.
