African-American Educational and Cultural Festival
The event included food, music, dance and poetry — from steel drummers and African dancers to Gospel music by the First Baptist Church Liturgical Ministry.
The complexities of African American history make it difficult to unearth and nearly impossible to condense into one small exhibit space during one month of the year. But Marylin Winter and Dr. James Banks of the African American Educational and Cultural Festival embrace the challenge.
The African-American Educational and Cultural Festival organized a reception and exhibit at Riverhead Free Library celebrating African-American culture and history by promoting diversity, multiculturalism and unity.
