Black Music Month Celebration kicks off Summer Concert Series
June was deemed Black Music Month by President Jimmy Carter in 1979. President Barack Obama has since announced the observance as African-American Music Appreciation Month. Richland Library will kick off its summer concert series today, June 12, with a performance by local jazz/inspirational saxophonist, Dante Lewis. Hip Hop artist Sheem One will continue our June celebration with a performance on June 26. Our summer concert series showcases a variety of local talent and will continue through August. You may find CDs by all of the performers in our local music collection, but be sure to check out these live performances starting at 7:00 p.m. on alternate Thursdays in the Film and Sound Department.
