Teaching Black History one art piece at a time
For the seventh year, the Ina Thompson Moss Point Library is hosting a Black History Month art show.
The art show features 30 art pieces made by local Moss Point artist Leroy Williams that feature black leaders, black history, and landscapes of the Moss Point area.
Also featured are pieces of jewelry handcrafted by Miss Glen Mack that features black history symbols as well as African crafting styles.
The show will be open all of February in accordance with Black History Month. Branch Manager Lynn Rainey said, “Moss Point is a majority minority town. Seventy percent of the population of Moss Point is African-American. We want to support our community and support artistic endeavors in a community that has been historically disenfranchised.”
The show is free for anyone and is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
