The Anacostia Coordinating Council's February 27th meeting speaker will be ACC member and estimed co-founder of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Peggy Cooper Cafritz, discussing her new book, "Fired Up! Ready to Go!: Finding Beauty, Demanding Equity: An African American Life in Art. The Collections of Peggy Cooper Cafritz", that will be released on February 20th.
After its release, the book will cost $75 but if it is pre-ordered the cost is less. "Fired Up! Ready to Go!" is available at area booksellers including Amazon, Barnes & Noble and others.
Peggy is one of the nation's foremost collectors of African American art. When her house burned down in 2009, it resulted in a devastating loss of art in that genre, but the collection had been briefly featured in the article "Art House: Supporting Talented Young Artists of Color by Cathleen Medwick".
Lunch is provided. You are encouraged to bring your colleagues and consider making a donation to the Anacostia Community Museum (ACM) and/or becoming an ACC member for only $25 a year.
