The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) will host two free events in February as part of Black History Month.

Organized by soprano, educator, and community organizer Margaret Barron and visual artist and educator Yusuf Lateef, this two-part program focuses on conversation and spoken word in celebration of Black History Month.

The spoken word focus of the event will take place Saturday, Feb. 22 at 2 p.m. in the Great Gallery.  The music focus of the event will take place Sunday, Feb. 23 at 3 p.m. in the Great Gallery.

Both events will explore this year’s theme of African Americans and the Vote.

“This two-part event at the Toledo Museum of Art offers visitors the opportunity to hear from local voices as well as music that celebrates the history of Black History Month and the critical importance of voting to a community,” said Scott Boberg, TMA’s manager of programming and audience engagement.

Great Performances is supported in part by the Dorothy MacKenzie Price Fund, the Victoria Majure Souder Program Fund, Hartmann Bogan financial planning, Joseph and Judith Conda, Shaun Coughlan, Carlos A. de Carvalho, Geraldine Mowery, Nancy K. Phlegar, and an anonymous donor.
