Thinking In Full Color (TIFC) returns to Hoboken!

In a performance presented by the Hoboken Public Library, an all-new talented lineup will share poems and monologues as part of the Hoboken Housing Authority’s Black History Month Celebration Dinner.

This year’s amazing crew of performers will discuss Black intellectualism, womanhood and the complexities of the mother-daughter relationship. After the performance, there will be a brief audience talkback.

Other event features include a guest speaker, an art display, dinner, and a brief history of the African-American experience and honorees.
