To commemorate Black History Month, the Bronx Music Heritage Center hosted an opening reception for its newest exhibit, ‘Black is Beautiful: A Tribute to Elombe Brath’ on Saturday, February 25.

The multimedia exhibit honors Elombe Brath, an activist and artist who grew up in Hunts Point and from an early age was involved in the local jazz scene promoting shows for up-and-coming artists like Jimmy Owens.

The exhibit will be displayed until Sunday, April 30 and can be viewed every Friday and Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m. at 1303 Louis Niné Boulevard.
