A BEAUTIFUL BLEND OF POETRY, MUSIC, AND ART
11:00 a.m.—4:00 p.m. • February 25, 2023
"Reimagine Your Library."
This Black History Month, we're hosting a Black History Festival with our friends at Central Library and you are cordially invited to LIBRARY OUT LOUD.
Join us for a celebration of the arts. The Black History Month Festival, which focuses on the theme "Sentiments of Sankofa," will celebrate history, heritage, and the humanities through spoken word, stories, and songs.
Sentiments of Sankofa is an artistic response to Dr. Carter G. Woodson's call to revisit the contributions of African Americans. The interactive exhibition explores archival resources and the vital importance of Black cultural expression through the lens of Black Librarianship and the literary works of R. Gregory Christie.
The program will be held in two parts and double as an African American Read-In. Looking back at Dr. Jerrie Cobb's call to see ourselves in books, we have set forth to commemorate Black Authors. To ensure that Black voices and visions are heard, shared, and celebrated, we will shine a light on both literary luminaries and rising stars. The Rhythm & Rhymes ™ Read-In (11:00 AM—2:00 PM) will place an emphasis on Black children's book writers and illustrators while the Scribes & Vibes ™ Read-In (1:00 PM—4:00 PM) holds space for creators of fiction, creative nonfiction, and fine art.

A DIFFERENT KIND OF VIBE
"We help you make your mark in a world that would otherwise paint a picture of you as invisible, voiceless, and undeserving."
Scribes & Vibes ™ celebrates diversity and inclusion through the lens of literature, spoken word, instrumentation, performance, and fine art. Our integrated arts programs are designed to shape thoughts, build a sense of community, and open the door for meaningful dialogue while knocking down the walls that constrain commonality.
Heeding to the aesthetics of the New Negro Movement, Scribes & Vibes ™ aspires to render a renewed sense of racial pride, cultural self-expression, economic independence, and progressive politics by providing an impregnable platform for underrepresented communities to voice their feelings, ideas, and concerns. Our open mic platform mixes social commentary with collaborative arts integration, to draw attention to community needs while increasing recreational reading and creative expression.
Scribes & Vibes ™ community-based arts programs offer an array of opportunities to help the marginalized color outside the lines in efforts to erase hate and break down color barriers. Long story short, we help you make your mark in a world that would otherwise paint a picture of you as invisible, voiceless, and undeserving.
Scribes & Vibes ™ evolved on the ethos of "a safe space for the invisible to be seen and the voiceless to be heard is a well-deserved step for all walks of life." When you experience the Scribes & Vibes ™ vibe, you will come to see that with a little art in your heART, it is much easier to establish common ground.
