and `Afro' history

Social Scene

This fall, many of you may have taken part in the annual city-sponsored event that offers the cultural landscape of Baltimore at no charge.

Many performances and exhibits were part of Free Fall Baltimore, which lasted all of October. Participating venues included dance studios, museums and theaters.

It was almost impossible for anyone to take advantage of every event because Baltimore's cultural scene has a lot to offer. So we're sharing photos of two events that took place.

Young hip-hop enthusiasts, dancers and artists showcased their talent at the Village Learning Place. And there was dancing of a different kind - jazz and modern - at the Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center.

Last month, a discussion by Afro American Newspapers staff kicked off a celebration of the 115th anniversary of the organization and an exhibit about the newspapers at the Enoch Pratt Free Library downtown.

The exhibit, on the library's second floor, features old photographs, letters, copies of the newspaper and other memorabilia that will take you back to when the paper's mission was clearly defined by the racial strife of the times.
