Celebration of Black 

When: Feb. 1-28 2013
Price: Free

We have Carter G. Woodson to thank for Black History Month. Back in 1926, Woodson, a black historian, teacher and activist, founded Negro History Week, which was eventually expanded into the entire month, and to this day, is still honored in the U.S., Canada and, though held in October, the United Kingdom. Marmalade at Smokebrush (219 W. Colorado Ave., #210, smokebrush.org) will contribute with Celebration of Black, a month-long exhibit of photography by Jana — who has captured the likes of Chaka Khan and Grace Jones for the New York Times and Rolling Stone — as well as three nights of live music and poetry. It all kicks off for free at 6 tonight, with more to follow throughout February. — Edie Adelstein
