The music of Cab Calloway, Lena Horne and other greats filled the Richardson Public Library’s Basement Program Room today as part of the Lunchtime Lecture series that focused on the Harlem Renaissance.

It was presented by musicians Doc and Vera Gibbs, who enthralled the audience with a live performance of several tunes and information about the Harlem Renaissance, an intellectual, social and artistic explosion centered in New York City’s Harlem during the first part of the 20th century. 

“By introducing the information about the history of the Harlem Renaissance, people can see that this is actually a spring board to more acceptance, people getting along and appreciating one another for the talents that we have, “ said Doc Gibbs, who spoke and entertained during the presentation.
