Montclair Public Library proudly presents master tap-dancer Maurice Chestnut. Mr. Chestnut, along with professional tap dancers,will dance to hip hop and jazz songs by musicians such as Freddie Hubbard and Miles Davis. His presentation is a labor of love in homage to the invaluable artistic contributions by African American artists.
This electrifying event includes a powerful exhibit of commemorative stamps celebrating singular African-Americans and a PowerPoint presentation by philatelist (stamp collector) Clarence M. McKnight about the Civil Rights Movement stamps “To Form a More Perfect Union.” Mr. McKnight has been collecting stamps since 1986.
