John Jermain Memorial Library is pleased to announce the addition of a new exhibition to our schedule of events for Black History Month: Harlem in the Hamptons. This exhibit celebrates the cultural history of Harlem and shows the connection between this history and the African American communities in Sag Harbor. The exhibit was organized by Harold and Beryl Banks, Gladys Barnes, and Eunice (Jackie) Vaugh and was originally shown at the Eastville Community Historical Society. The exhibit opens on Friday, February 12th and runs through Tuesday, February 23rd in the third-floor rotunda.
JJML also will participate in the 21st annual African-American Read-In on Sunday February 21 st from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. If you would like to participate in the read-in, please select a passage from a book, a poem or any literary work authored by an African American and join us at the library where you can share it with others on Sunday afternoon, February 21, 2010.
