Town Preps for Black History Month

BLYTHEWOOD – As part of the Town’s Cultural Arts program, residents of the Blythewood community are invited to attend a Black History Committee planning meeting Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. at Blythewood Town Hall.

The purpose of the meeting is to gather input from the community for a special Black History Month celebration in February.

“Celebrating Blythewood African Americans through Honor and the Arts” will include a number of events throughout the month including a theater production of a play written by a local African American, a ceremony honoring African-American residents who have demonstrated leadership in the community and excellence in their respective career fields, as well as a gospel concert featuring the Blythewood Community Choir and a Worship Dance Team.

The Town will be partnering with community organizations and churches to sponsor the month-long series of events.

Nominations are also being accepted for honorees for the Blythewood 2015 African American Awards of Excellence until Dec. 3.
