Black history month kicks off with tradition in Baltimore

See also

February is celebrated as Black History month. We take time to remember the contributions made by African American people and to reflect upon the progress made.

The Reginald F. Lewis Museum kicked off the month February 1, 2014 by remembering the cultural tradition of the griots, or storytellers. There were various performances for this Griot's Eye Festival which focused upon youth film and culture. The showcase celebrated the African Diaspora and featured Youth films, African Drum and Dance, Musical and theatrical performances as well as poetry.

The event was sponsored by the Griot's Eye Program. Their mission is "to equip youth with the technical and creative skills to address issues of immediate relevance in their lives through film and photography".

The website for the Griot's Eye Program is ayainc.org/griotseye.

The Reginald F. Lewis Museum is located at 830 E. Pratt Street in Baltimore.
