SPECIAL EVENT | Baobab Cultural Center Fundraiser 

The Baobab Cultural Center is in need of some community aid. The art gallery and resource center, dedicated to educating Rochesterians about the African Diaspora, is racing to raise $10,000 to stay open. A fundraiser will be held Friday, December 1, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at the center (728 University Avenue), with a $10 suggested entry donation. There's also a GoFundMe page currently taking donations — they're at just over half-way by mid-day Thursday.

Founded in 2005, The Baobab Cultural Center regularly hosts lectures, film screenings, art exhibits, and other educational events focused on African culture and the African-American experience — in 2010, Baobab hosted a book signing with poet and political activist Amiri Baraka.
