Free Family Day
Mark your calendars for February 20th, 11am-1pm for stories, crafts, snacks and much more!
In honor of Black History Month, we will be hosting a Free Family Day! We will be featuring storyteller Lerner Roberts and celebrating Lynn’s own Frederick Douglass who would have turned 200 this month!
To commemorate Black History Month, the Community Minority Cultural Center will be presenting the two-part movie, Hidden Colors. This is a documentary series about the real and untold history of people of color around the globe and discusses some of the reasons the contributions of African and aboriginal people have been left out of the pages of history. The film features scholars, historians, and social commentators who uncovered such amazing facts about things such as the original image of Christ, the true story about the Moors, the great west African empires, and much more.
- Part one of the movie will be shown on February 19th at the CMCC 248 Union St., Lynn, at 7PM.
- Part two of the movie will be shown on on February 21st at the Lynn Museum, 590 Washington St., at 7PM.
