Harvard High School Student Art Show



Once again this year, the talented art students at the high school will display their art and craft at the library from April 27 through May 8 during regular library hours. From paintings, sculpture, and assemblage to jewelry, their art will impress you.

Chris Vallillo returns with "Oh, Freedom, Songs of the Civil Rights Movement"

On Saturday, May 9, at 2:00 pm, folk singer Chris Vallillo will be at the library to present Oh, Freedom! The Civil Rights Movement has been described as one of the greatest singing movements that this country has experienced. From "We Shall Overcome" to "This Little Light of Mine," music played a vital role in that historic struggle both as an inspirational rallying point and as a way to spread the message of equality and justice. Music was a huge part of the process locally and nationally.

In a show created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the movement, award winning Illinois folksinger Chris Vallillo performs pivotal songs from the music that inspired and sustained this landmark social movement. Intermixed with the music, Vallillo presents first hand accounts of the historic struggle and discusses the impact of music to our nation's most important social cause. (Free admission and open to the public.)
