Young People’s Talent Show Coming to Ralph Ellison Library


What do TV talent shows have that Ralph Ellison doesn’t have?  Other than condescending judges, nothing.  What does the talent show at the library have that TV doesn’t?  The excitement of seeing new talent perform live.

The Ralph Ellison Library and Michael C. Washington present “A Young People Entrepreneurs’ Talent Show” at the library, 2000 N.E. 23rd Street, on Saturday, November 24 starting at 11 a.m.

“We’ll be recognizing talent in four separate categories,” said library manager Michael Owens.  “We’ll look for performers who have a talent for rap, singing, dance, and poetry writing, with prizes for the top three performers.  Call the library at 424-1437or visit the Information Desk for details.”

This event is co-sponsored by Buy For Less, Empowering People, Inc., Ghetto Governa Productions, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), McDonald’s, and the NAACP.
