The Latest Calendar of Events for Winter/Spring 2013

CAPE MAY - The 2013 Cape May, NJ Calendar of Events sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC) is here! Jan. 19-April 14 "Celebrating Community Service: Black Fraternal, Social and Civic Organizations of Cape May County." This exhibit presented by the Center for Community Arts (CCA) in collaboration with MAC will uncover the significance of black fraternal, social and civic organizations in African American social life. Because the African American community is often ignored by mainstream organizations, the Busy Bees, Sea Gals, Masons, Eastern Stars, Elks, the Black USO and CCA - to name a few - have emerged with the sole purpose of enhancing the lives of African Americans. In addition, black organizations can serve specific needs that only pertain to African American families. Hundreds exist nationwide with local chapters in cities and towns. The focus of this exhibit will be the Black organizations of Cape May County. Free admission. Gallery hours vary. Free exhibit opening Jan. 21 at 4 p.m. Co-sponsored by the Center for Community Arts (CCA) and the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC).
