The Village at Friendship Heights continues its annual celebration of African American History Month with an exhibit of African American artists whose work reflects a rich connection to their artistic forbearers who have provided them with a keen sense of culture and history.

Exhibiting are: Llewellyn Berry, Hank Douglas, Gloria Kirk, Hubert Jackson, Richard Fitzhugh, Kamala Subramanian, Magruder Murray, John Beckley, Dwight Tyler, Nanno Smith, Barbara Hardaway, Jim Cureton, Bruce Fagin, Gwendolyn Aqui-Brooks, Gail Hansberry, Wanda Aikens.
