The African-American Musical Mosaic at the American Museum of National History Museum
Kids (ages six and up) try their hand at mancala, an African board game played with seeds or stones that opponents seek to capture (noon–1pm). Assistant curator Alex de Voogt will be on hand to explain the rules and help iron out strategies. Afterward, enjoy live music performances from the Harlem Quartet, the First Corinthian Baptist Church, IMPACT Repertory Theatre, Charles Mack and Sandra-Reeves Phillips. Hip-hop aficionados will want to stick around for a chat and Q&A session at 5:15pm with Darryl “DMC” McDaniels (from Run-DMC), who will share some of his musical stylings after the discussion. Sat Feb 18 noon–6pm. American Museum of Natural History. Free with museum admission. All ages.
