African America at the cultural center Friday

It's a look into the modern African diaspora in Minnesota.

The surprising appearance of a charming, magical African leads a modern interracial couple to a better understanding and appreciation of the experience of immigrants to Minnesota from Liberia, Ethiopia and Somalia, and helps them consider how to connect with and celebrate everyone's heritage.

Presented by Mixed Blood Theatre, of Minneapolis, this play, "African America," was written by Warren Bowles. It will be performed at the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center on Friday, Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m.

There is a cost to attend, though students get in free and those who bring a non-perishable food item for the NY Mills Food Shelf will receive a $1 discount. For tickets or more information, call 218-385-3339.

This activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board.
