Library organizes Black History month activitiesPOSTED: 02/9/12 1:32 PM
St. Maarten – The Philipsburg Jubilee Library has organized two major events and a series of movie nights to mark Black History Month that begins with a book party for Hillie Arduin’s first children’s book – Princess Ivana, the princess that did not want to comb her hair. The party will be held on February 18 at 10:00 a.m. at the children’s corner in the library.
The second major activity is a presentation by Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Dr. Rhoda Arrindell at 7:30 p.m. on February 18. The presentation is being jointly hosted by the library and the Conscious Lyrics Foundation. The overall theme is “Language culture and identity in St. Martin”, which was the subject of Arrindell’s thesis.
“Since many people were not able to attend Arrindell’s first highly informative on November 28, the library and Conscious Lyrics foundation asked the minister to do a follow up presentation on February 18,” a release from the library stated.
The movie nights, which begin on February 14, will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday. The movies in order will be Drum line, Get on the bus, Lean on me, Hotel Rwanda, Akeela and the Bee, and Underground Railroad.
