Event Type: Open to All - Members & Public

Plan to come by TALB on Friday, October 3rd, 2014 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm during First Fridays in Bixby Knolls when thousands of people come out to Atlantic Avenue to enjoy art, music, activities, and food between Bixby Road and San Antonio Drive. We're here right on the corner of Atlantic & Claiborne at 4362 Atlantic Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90807.

We'll see a performance by the Young, Gifted, and Talented Black History Club (YGT) Step Team from Hughes Middle School who took first place earlier this year at the Stepping in the Right Direction Competition, Middle School Division. YGT uses performing arts to encourage and motivate students to achieve academic success. YGT was founded by TALB member and algebra teacher Dr. Vickie McCloyn.

We'll also be featuring the poets and musicians of Cadence Collective, including:

Keyboard and guitar vocalist Alex Hattick, poets Nancy Lynée Woo and Sarah Thursday, and guitar and violin vocal group BobKat.
