It’s astounding to think that only 46 years ago, the lifetime of many Baby Boomers, African-Americans could not vote in this country. There were heros, big and small, who led the movement to liberate black people from backward white oppression. They helped forged an equal society where a black man holds the reigns of the very country that only 145 years ago abolished slavery. The ongoing Black History exhibit at Avery Gallery at Seaside City Hall celebrates the moments and achievements of a truly extraordinary people who’ve overcome untold adversity. The exhibit features artwork and historical artifacts, namely pictures, that depict black history in the United States. The opening reception Sunday, Feb. 21, promises music, poetry, oral history and “gooood eating.” Admission is free but the education and inspiration is priceless. [MF]
