Black History Live — York 

When: Wed., Feb. 16, 5:30 p.m. 2011
Price: Free

Well before George Washington Carver saved the South with his nuts, there was another heroic African-American contribution — only York's was involuntary and unrewarded. After Napoleon sold the Louisiana Territory to the U.S. for $15 million, Thomas Jefferson appropriated Lewis and Clark to explore it. Clark added York, the slave he'd owned since childhood, to the corps destined for this precarious expedition. Black History Live (coloradohumanities.org) will recount York's life through the performance of the scholar Hasan Davis at 5:30 tonight. An RSVP (e-mail info@cospdiversityforum.org) is required for this free event taking place at Stargazers Theatre and Event Center (10 S. Parkside Drive, stargazerstheatre.com) — Eric Calder
