Joe Becton Returns to Jenkintown Library for Black History Month

History comes alive on Saturday, February 24 from 2:00-3:00 PM when Joe Becton visits Jenkintown Library to present a program on the role of African Americans in the Revolutionary War.

Joe Becton and company will present a one hour interactive musical and interpretive program. The presenters appear in 18th century style clothing and equipment.  Mr. Becton will discuss the reasons for the war and illuminate the history of these soldiers and people.  He will sing and perform camp songs on guitar. Each song is accompanied by a story which frames the song in its historic context.  Group participation is highly encouraged.


Happy February!
