Schomburg Center First Fridays: “Afro-Beat” Edition

afro_beat_edition-Schomburg First Fridays -Nov 2017

November 3, 2017 at 6:00pm – 10:00pm

Join us for our popular monthly social gathering, where there’ll be live music, signature drinks,  an  opportunity to network with others in the community. This month we’re celebrating the rich sounds of Afro-Beat music, birthed by Fela Ransome Kuti!

With our extended hours, Guests are also invited to check out our three exhibitions Black Power, Power in Print, and Unshackled Ink. And don’t miss a special performance from a surprise guest!  In addition, we’re proud to announce that Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey will power First Fridays. A fitting partnership as First Fridays celebrates culturally relevant occasions through local talent and Jack Daniel’s is deeply connected with the community. Your friends at Jack Daniel’s remind you to drink responsibly.

Sign up for a Schomburg membership, become a Schomburg volunteer, and visit the Schomburg Shop—while networking and dancing the night away!

Our host for the night will be Liz The Intl Diva aka Mama Sade, meanwhile, DJ Buka & DJ Don from the Muoka Mills Experience will spin Afro Beat tracks in our Langston Hughes Lobby, which will further enhance our theme of the evening.  You must be 21+ to enter. See you there! #FirstFridays   #Halloween
