Garfield Heights Branch Zoom 1

Join us for a performance about notable African American icons and historical figures by storyteller Linda Gorham.

As a backdrop to her own family’s dreams and goals, Linda Gorham reveals the stories of African American men and women who, over the past 100 years, broke color barriers and had noteworthy accomplishments – often despite difficult circumstances. Gorham incorporates her family’s stories, music, personal narrative, quotes, audience participation, and interesting facts to commemorate their achievements. Program includes Scott Joplin, Carter G. Woodson, Janet Collins, Misty Copeland, Marshall “Major” Taylor, Nat King Cole, Johnny Mathis, Usher, Jesse Owens, Arthur Ashe, Althea Gibson, Ruby Bridges, The Little Rock Nine, Lena Horne, Ella Fitzgerald, Beyonce, A. Philip Randolph, and more. Q&A to follow the performance.
