In honor of Black History Month, three Monroe churches say it's time to pay a visit to the 1960's. 

Northminster Church, St. Matthew's Church of Christ and World Love Ministries are collaborating on a show called The Watsons Go to Birmingham--1963. The play is about an African-American family in Detroit struggling to raise their son Byron. 

ULM

A new exhibition at the University of Louisiana at Monroe offers insight into contributions that African culture has made to Western society.

Xiomara Bell, a Tallulah native and master’s student in ULM’s history program, has created an African American History display with Associate Professor of history, Dr. Jeffrey Anderson. The display is now open for viewing in ULM’s Special Collections, located on the 5th floor of the ULM Library.

The display will run throughout the entire month of February.
