Family Free Days: Celebrating National African American Heritage Month

Presented by Parker Arts

Feb 23, 2020 The PACE Center

Featuring Akeelah and the Bee, an inspirational film about an 11-year-old girl with a gift for words from South Los Angeles who participates in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, overcoming difficult challenges along the way. This is a non-ticketed event. No reservations are necessary.

The U.S. Congress established National Heritage Months to celebrate the unique contributions made by specific cultural groups to American history, society and culture.

As a new addition to our season, Parker Arts will host three Family Free Days at the PACE Center to celebrate the associated National Heritage Month. These free family events will take place on Sunday afternoons from 2-6PM, and will feature traditional food, crafts and entertainment, including a family-friendly film in our Event Room. Costumes, pillows and furry (stuffed) friends are encouraged!
