What is the hottest entertainment ticket in the month of February? Make plans now to visit the Main Library for our annual "Taste of Soul Sunday" February 20, 2011 from 1-4 p.m. * Families and kids will enjoy learning about African culture with the West Michigan Jewels of Africa, a traditional African dance and drum group. * Hear cool sounds from musical groups like Hey Marco! (featuring popular music from the 70's through today), IMANI (Gospel music), and returning again this year is the Quatenus String Quartet (Classical music). Get in step with performances presented by The Zeta Phi Beta/Archonettes, and The Alpha Esquires. Be there as the Ivylettes take a "stroll." There will also be a Step demonstration for teens in the afternoon. * Sample some of the area's tastiest soul foods from: Southern Fish Fry Chez Olga Lolo's Cafe * Speakers (and topics) scheduled include: Dorothy Sewe (The African Immigrant's Experience in the U.S.) Coy Davis (What happened to Idlewild?) Dr. Rik Stevenson ("Mis-developement" of Black Men in the U.S.) Gwen Crawford (Healthy Soul Food) Mark your calendars now. Don't miss it!
