Celebrate Black History - A Musical Journey With Matthew

Celebrate Black History with a unique, educational music program tailored to all age groups that will have your feet tapping and your hands clapping!

Travel along the Mississippi Delta and explore genres such as Ragtime, Stride, Boogie Woogie, and New Orleans Blues. Hear how they imparted their influence on Swing, Country, Rock n' Roll, and other musical styles that forever reshaped how we think about music, and the emotional response it triggers within us.

Understand how Black history is an integral part of American history. Without it, the music and culture of yesteryear that we so cherish would not leave enduring, everlasting memories.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Newark Free Library, who are a volunteer non-profit organization bringing support to your library through funding and advocacy.

Registration Required! Please register for each individual attending. All ages welcome!
