For Immediate Release
Elombe Brath was an African American legend that worked as an artist for the ABC television station and a community activist who inspired a Pan African Movement whose radio listeners remain loyal to his political concerns as heard on his WBAI Afrikaleidoscope radiobroadcast. We are happy to announce two great cultural events to celebrate and remember his legacy during Black History month, which takes place in Manhattan at Boricua College and in the Bronx at the Bronx Music Heritage Center.
You are cordially invited to attend both art exhibitions:
