AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH CELEBRATIONS: FEBRUARY 
The Lincoln Recreation Center is hosting a variety of events throughout February to celebrate African-American History Month. We hope to see you there!
 
MOVIE NIGHT
Friday, Feb. 3 | 6:30-8:30 p.m. | Free
Munch on popcorn and watch “Remember the Titans” on our 32-foot-high inflatable high-definition screen. “Remember the Titans” is based on the true story of coach Herman Boone -- portrayed by Denzel Washington --  as he molds a racially diverse high school team in Virginia in 1971. Will Patton portrays Bill Yoast, an assistant coach making a transition to help Boone. How these men overcome their differences and turn a group of hostile young men into champions plays out in a remarkable and memorable story.
 
FEEL THE BEAT OF THE AFRICAN DRUM
Monday, Feb. 6 | 6:30 p.m. | Free
Live drumming and teachings of West African dance.
 
RESEARCH YOUR FAMILY
Tuesdays: Feb. 7, 14, 21 & 28 | 10 a.m. | Free
You’re invited to learn how to research your family history, explore your roots and develop a family tree.
 
SOUL FOOD & BLUES NIGHT
Friday, Feb. 17 | 6:30-10 p.m. | $10-15/plate
Sit and enjoy good food for the soul while listening to live Blues and R&B music. The meal will be catered by Johnny Gooden of Gooden’s Barbecue.  
 
EDO DOLLS
Monday, Feb. 20 | 2:30-4:30 p.m. | $5/person
The Edo doll is the children’s interpretation of traditional ceremonial clothing worn by Edo royalty and dignitaries to the Oba, honoring the beautiful image of the Benin people of Nigeria. Participants will create an Edo doll. The class is designed for all skill levels, especially children and teens.

NDEBELE DOLLS
Monday, Feb. 20 | 6:30-8:80 p.m. | $20/person
Linga Koba dolls are from the Ndebele people in Southern Africa. One of the smallest tribes of the region, the Ndebele are noted for their homes painted in brilliant colors that stand out in the drab countryside. Their clothing is similarly colorful and detailed, and so is the bead work on the Ndebele dolls. Participants will create Ndebele dolls from water bottles, cardboard, fabric, beads and other embellishments.

For more information, call 979.764.3779 or email cjohnson@cstx.gov.
