First Friday with Ebony Theatre celebrates Native American Heritage Month

Submitted by Brandon Haddock

K-State's Ebony Theatre and the K-State Native American Student Body with the Indigenous Faculty and Staff Alliance will host First Friday from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 4, in the Sandy Chastan Purple Masque Lobby. The November event will honor the contributions of the Indigenous/Native American communities to the historical arts of music, theater, dance and literature.

First Friday is a monthly arts-infused social gathering that gives a variety of performers a chance to share their work while attendees gather for conversation and refreshments. Co-sponsors of former First Friday events include the LGBTQ student organizations, Black Student Union, the Native American Student Body and the Indigenous Faculty and Staff Alliance.

November's First Friday will feature live jazz music, guest speakers and an open mic inspired by the influence of Indigenous/Native American culture on contemporary arts movements and the month of November as Native American Heritage Month.

Ebony Theatre's First Friday is free and open to the public. Students, faculty, staff and community members are all welcome.
