Black History Month: African-American Art

Fifth Annual African-American Read-In (Feb. 25)  |  Shively Library, Louisville Free Public Library  |  3920 Dixie Highway  |  lfpl.org/events  |  Free  |  6:30-8 p.m.

All too often African-American artists and leaders are overlooked for their white contemporaries. This is a chance to recognize the work of black luminaries with dramatic readings and performances of their art by Louisville creatives.

Oh Freedom! Concert (Feb. 26)
Carnegie Center for Art & History
201 E. Spring St., New Albany  |  carnegiecenter.org  |  Free (registration required)  |  6 p.m. 

Members of the Kentucky Opera will take you through a vocal history of black music: from the songs of West Africa to the emotional anthems that inspired the civil rights movement. It’s a taste of what’s to come in 2019 as the Carnegie Center kicks off a year of interpreting African-American history through the arts.

Monday, FEB. 25 and FEB. 26
