Fourth Friday at Guelph Civic Museum Celebrates Black History Month

GUELPH, ON, February 23: As part of Fourth Fridays, Guelph Museums and the Guelph Black Heritage Society are presenting blues singer-songwriter Malachi Greenidge and two movies – “The Sistahs Concert” and “Koo Nimo Palm Wine Guitar”— on Friday, February 27, at the Guelph Civic Museum.

“The Sistahs Concert” features appearances by Molly Johnson, Jackie Richardson, Ada Lee, Divine Brown, Toya Alexis, Alana Bridgewater, Sacha Williamson and Skakura S’aida, and celebrates these women as performers, interpreters and songwriters. “Koo Nimo Palm Wine Guitar” explores the life and music of legendary Ghanaian High Life guitarist, Koo Nimo, and documents him meeting with the late, great Lord Kitchener, and jamming with Len “Boogsie” Sharpe, perhaps the greatest steelpan virtuoso.

On Fourth Fridays, museum admission is free from 5 to 9 pm. All current exhibitions and galleries are open to the public.

The Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street.
