RAMBLING ROSE: Black History Month begins

Hello everyone, I hope everyone is well and came out of the terrible snowstorm all right. I suppose it could have been much worse considering other places in the country.

There isn’t too much going on this weekend, I guess we are still trying to dig out of the snow and get ready for all the events coming up for Black History Month in February. However, I do know that the King David Lodge #18 will host the “Men in Black, All Black Everything Cabaret” on Saturday, January 30 from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. at the Delta Center located at 2501 Springhill Avenue in Baltimore. This event is BYOB and BYOF. DJ Mike Jones will provide entertainment. For ticket information, call Curtis Williams at 410-258-1715.
