Celebrate rich history of African American literature of "Inventions and Inventors in Black." This program is made possible, in part, by the Norman Arts Council Grant Program.

What do ice cream molds, potato chips, and straightening irons have in common? These were all invented by African Americans! Celebrate the rich history of African American literature with music and spoken word performances focused around "Inventions and Inventors in Black." Narrated by Charlotte Gordon, the first Black cheerleader at OU, listeners will learn more about Black history and music from local readers and performers.

Tickets to the February 24th Crown's Tea at Norman Public Library Central will be made available at this event (limit 4 per person, while supplies last). 

Join us at Norman West on February 17th for a follow-up African American Music program.

For more information, visit or call the library at (405) 217-0770.

This program is made possible, in part, by the Norman Arts Council Grant Program.
