James B. Duke Memorial Library
Black History Month Celebration

Celebrate with us this groundbreaking book on Divine Kingship of Asante: A Model For Sustainable Development of Self and Community. Dr. Ur Aua Hehi Metu Ra EnKamit has put together this piece of literary work that studies the ways in which the Asante Kingship offers a sustainable model to improve the quality of leadership and global unity.

The black history month celebration will start with a book discussion for college students on February 9, 2018 and on February 10th the community can visit the African marketplace, see a performance by Westside Cultural Arts program, dance with A Sign Of The Times jazz band, meet and greet the author and have some hor d’oeuvres and dessert while touring the library exhibits from 1:00PM-4:00PM.

The program is Free for JCSU Students, Staff and Faculty. There is a $10 donation for the community participation to support the library’s makerspace and the Ghana Library project.
