Individuals of all ages are invited to an evening of cultural entertainment including a gospel performance by The Williams Singers, a comedy show by comedienne Tanya Lewis, and the always-popular African-American fashion show. Attendees will also view the unveiling of the Central Library Engraving Project, an initiative that added the names of literary leaders of color to the list of notable authors etched into the interior walls of Central Library.
The Indianapolis Public Library African American History Committee in support of The Center for Black Literature & Culture at Central Library invites you to the 2022 Meet the Artists exhibit. This year's exhibit features the artists "The Eighteen," a collective of 18 like minded and civically engaged Black visual artists in and around the Indianapolis Metropolitan Area who painted Indy's #BlackLivesMatter street mural. The exhibit is free and open to the public during Library hours. In addition, you can visit exhibits at three of our branch locations: East 38th Street, Beech Grove, and West Indianapolis.
