Harlem Renaissance program to continue Feb. 1
The Kansas City, Kansas, Public Library will be celebrating the Harlem Renaissance with several events planned this winter.

During January and February, the library will have art exhibits, movies, book clubs, and concerts, all celebrating the movement and people of Harlem – including an artist from Kansas. The inspiration for this event series was Aaron Douglas, a prominent and influential artist during the Harlem Renaissance. Douglas was born in Topeka, Kansas, and lived there until graduating from high school. Library patrons will be able to learn more about Douglas by attending events held in partnership with the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Remaining events include Feb. 1 at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and Feb. 15 at South Branch Library. Library patrons can register for these events on the library’s online calendar at kckpl.org or by visiting is.gd/HarlemEvents.
