FAMILY | Black History Month Family Day at the MAG 

The Memorial Art Gallery is hosting a celebration of Black History Month, with a day of family-aimed festivities. This year's theme is "Patterning Freedom," and will include a poetry-fashion fusing event hosted by poets Lutonya Highsmith and Jahaka Mindstorm. Artwork by Ephraim Daniels, Frances Hare, Greg Rice, Shawn Dunwoody and Brittany Williams will be featured, and attendees will be able to view their work and participate in a moderated conversation with them. "Women Who Loved Them," presented by the Black Storytelling League of Rochester, explores the lives of Coretta Scott King, Anna Murray Douglass, and Betty Shabazz. Several guided tours of MAG exhibits will run in the afternoon. R&B, Funk, and blues music will be provided by Cincopation.

Black History Month Family Day is on Sunday, February 22, at the Memorial Art Gallery, 500 University Avenue. 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Free ($5 per family suggested donation). Visit for a full schedule of the day.
