The Keystone College Concerts and Lectures Series will celebrate Black History Month with a free performance of “Of Ebony Embers: Vignettes of the Harlem Renaissance” by the Core Ensemble on Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 7 p.m. in Brooks Theatre at the college’s LaPlume campus.

The performance will explore the life and times of African-Americans who helped shaped the Harlem Renaissance. According to organizers, “Of Ebony Embers” connects its audience to the lives and works of three very different African-American poets, Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen and Claude McKay, as seen through the eyes of painter and muralist Aaron Douglas.

Since 1993, the Core Ensemble has toured nationally and internationally. The ensemble was the recipient of the Eugene McDermott Award for Excellence in the Arts awarded by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has received support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New England Foundation for the Arts, the Aaron Copland Fund for Music and other organizations.
