Marin events planned to mark Black History Month

(Alan Dep/Marin Independent Journal)

Film screenings, art and culture talks and discussions about the Black experience are set to commemorate Black History Month in Marin. The annual observance has been held in February since 1976 to honor the achievements of African Americans and recognize their role in the nation’s history. “Black history is American history,” said Stephanie Hartwell-Mandella, the branch manager of the Corte Madera Library and the Marin County Free Library Black History program manager. “It’s important for us to share our stories with each other.” The county library’s program this year is called “Food for the Soul: Celebrate Black History at MCFL,” Hartwell-Mandella said. The programming, which lasts all month, was created in conjunction with the County of Marin African American Employees Association. The inaugural events include a look at Black music, fashion and culture magazines Jet and Ebony published from the 1950s to 1990s. The interactive presentations are set for 1:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday at MC Arts and Culture at 100 Donahue St. 190 B. “These magazines are a staple in Black households,” said Etienne Douglas, the technology program coordinator for the Marin City Library. Douglas is hosting the presentation with Oshalla Marcus, founder of the MC Arts and Culture gallery. “We’re going to use the magazines as a kind of time capsule.”
