Wichita’s 46th Black Arts Festival will be all about community

Carl Stovall knows how important the Black Arts Festival is to the community. Founded in 1968 during the civil rights movement, its original mission was to give black families a respite from unrest both locally and nationally by offering an outlet for enjoying art and entertainment in a safe and supportive environment. The event has always been held, despite financial struggles in recent years. This year’s festival promises new activities and a greater opportunity for dialogue about several salient issues.

Dancers to perform in ‘Wonders of Mexico’ at Orpheum

Once upon a time, a priest from Mexico serving in the United States taught the struggling kids in his parish to dance. The young people turned out to be such naturals that they eventually took the show on the road. Their traveling troupe will be in Wichita on Saturday to present “The Wonders of Mexico.”
