Join VMBP Poet Laureate, Alyce Smitth Cooper, as she presents Poetry and Dance in Celebration of the Rent Party! Take a step back in time to Harlem to the Rent Parties of the 1920's. These giant city parties were a creative and fun way for the segregated black crowd to bridge the financial gap for their often too-high rent. Full of food, music, dance and drinks, these swinging' parties were, and still are, a vibrant part of our American History! Come help us celebrate a time of renaissance within our African American heritage with poetry, dance, good food and libations!  Food and Beverage available for purchase. FREE Parking
