The Reisterstown Road Branch Library is excited to be hosting a plethora of programs for the month of February in celebration of Black History Month. On February 5, 2013 local performing artist Doc Gibbs stopped by the branch to teach us on all things African Drum, Dance, and Percussion. The show that Mr. Gibbs and his ensemble presented was engaging, interactive, and kept rhythmic sounds of Africa flowing throughout the library. Mr. Gibbs took us on a journey through music and how it has traveled out of Africa to share its vibrant sounds with the world.

The excitement of the audience intertwined with the strong sounds of the percussion reminded us why it is important to celebrate the rich heritage of the African American race. Join us for more programming that will empower, enrich, and enhance the quality of your library experience.
