The Lincoln Recreation Center is hosting a variety of events throughout February to celebrate African-American History Month. We hope to see you there!

EDO DOLLS
Monday, Feb. 20 | 2:30-4:30 p.m. | $5/person
The Edo doll is the children’s interpretation of traditional ceremonial clothing worn by Edo royalty and dignitaries to the Oba, honoring the beautiful image of the Benin people of Nigeria. Participants will create an Edo doll. The class is designed for all skill levels, especially children and teens.

NDEBELE DOLLS
Monday, Feb. 20 | 6:30-8:30 p.m. | $20/person
Linga Koba dolls are from the Ndebele people in Southern Africa. One of the smallest tribes of the region, the Ndebele are noted for their homes painted in brilliant colors that stand out in the drab countryside. Their clothing is similarly colorful and detailed, and so is the bead work on the Ndebele dolls. Participants will create Ndebele dolls from water bottles, cardboard, fabric, beads and other embellishments.

RESEARCH YOUR FAMILY
Tuesdays: Feb. 21 & 28 | 10 a.m. | Free
You’re invited to learn how to research your family history, explore your roots and develop a family tree.
