NSU Kicks off Black History Month Celebration with 12th Annual African Presence
Help us kick off Black History Month at NSU!
You are invited to attend the opening reception of African Presence 2015, 12th Annual Art Exhibition on Thursday, February 5 beginning at 6:30 pm in the Don Taft University Center.
This year the exhibition features “Afros: A Celebration of Natural Hair.”
Over five years, photographer Michael July approached a variety of individuals and asked them to participate as subject models for a volume he was creating to chronicle the evolution of the Afro in America. He captured the best Afros as worn by people of virtually every shade, ethnicity, country and age group. Exhibition will feature photographs of black hair as well as a collection of traditional and African American picks, hot combs and other accessories.
The exhibition, which will run through March 15, will be unveiled at 8:00 pm in the NSU’s Alvin Sherman Library, Adolfo & Marisela Cotilla Gallery.
