Celebrate Black History Month with “African Americans in the Arts” 

By Donicia Soliz, Library Manager

St. Paul Public Library and the City of St. Paul are hosting a cultural celebration throughout February created by and for the Black and African American community. St. Paul residents are invited to explore “African Americans in the Arts” with three events offered virtually and in-person.

All events are free, and all are welcome.

The first event will be on Thursday, February 1 from Noon-1:30 p.m. At this virtual event, we will honor one of our Beautiful Ancestors and have a panel discussion with a select group of Minnesota Elders. They will share some of their history in the arts as well as some words of wisdom. 

On February 15 from 12-1:30 p.m. we are offering a mediation and yoga experience both virtually and in-person. If you would like to participate in person, you may do so at City Hall in Room 40.

Our final event will be in person at Rondo Library, 461 Dale Street North, on Thursday, February 29, from 3-7 p.m. featuring hands-on art creation where you can create a piece of art to take home. We will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of Hip-Hop with music, and there will be artistic and informational presentations.
