Westbury Arts’ 2024 Black History Celebration

February 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Westbury Arts proudly presents African American Culture: Connecting the Community Through the Arts

Join us for our Seventh Annual Black History Month Jubilee Celebration

African American Culture: Connecting the Community Through the Arts offers a rich tapestry of live performances in storytelling, dance, song, poetry, and cultural reflection!

The day’s events will be hosted by Mistress of Ceremonies Dr. Alicia Evans, Professor at The City College of New York, an award-winning Fiber Artist, a storyteller, and always a captivating speaker. Our performance program will feature the Praise Dancers of Shiloh Baptist Church of Rockville Centre, Danse Xpressions, and the award-winning, nationally recognized Rhythm of the Knights – Uniondale High School Show Choir.

Pat Jenkins Lewis, Westbury Arts Board Director, assisted by her daughter Angela Jenkins, organizes this event, in collaboration with Westbury Arts. They are honored to once again lead the Black History Month commemoration and celebration – “Through dance, song, and spoken word, we will educate as well as entertain. Our mission is to share the history, heritage, and achievements of Black people in the arts.”

This family-friendly event brings together the community and allows for sharing of information and history in an engaging and festive atmosphere. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome.
