Come celebrate Black History Month with friends. The Legacy Museum of African American History will present a special snap shot of The Rhythms of Yesterday and Today exhibit. Learn about the history of African American Music in Lynchburg, Virginia and surrounding areas while experiencing live performances from a few of these highlighted musicians! The legacy of African American music helps us discover the rhythms of our ancestors and learn from their journeys using the stories, people, connections, and contributions to music. Come, learn, dance, celebrate and explore gospel in four distinct time frames: The Harlem Renaissance 1918-1930. World War II 1939-1945, the Civil Rights Movement 1950-1970’s, and recent music from 1970 to today. Free event. Register by 2/21 preferred, but drop-ins are welcome. Refreshments served.
