It gives the entire family a chance to experience new and different cultures, literature and the arts.
Rancho Cucamonga’s Cultural Arts Nights will begin with a celebration of Black History Month at our “Black History Cultural Arts Night.” “This is one of my favorite Cultural Arts Nights of the year,” says Robert Karatsu, interim Library Director, “It was the first one we ever put on in 2007 and we have continued to do so ever since.”
The event will feature activities and performances for children, teens, and adults. Highlights will include a music experience performance by Makinto, a historical perspective on Black History Month by Chaffey College professor Charles Williams, traditional folktales told by storyteller Ina Buckner-Barnette, poetry readings by Back to Basics students, a tech class on genealogy, plus displays, activities and crafts. Free tickets will be available at the Biane Library and Archibald Library information desks beginning Monday, January 23.
