The ZUZU African Acrobats, known for their performance on America’s Got Talent, will perform on Tuesday, March 4, at 6 p.m. in the Abeloff Center for the Performing Arts at East Stroudsburg University.

The program, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by ESU’s African- American Heritage Month Committee, ESU’s Office of Diversity and ESU’s African-American Student Alliance. The event was originally scheduled for Monday, February 3, but because of inclement weather and the closing of the university, was postponed.

Although a few other events associated with African-American History Month have been completed already, there are still a couple others coming up. On Sunday, February 9, the African-American Student Alliance will have displays of historical African-American figures who are significant, but not well-known, at the African-American Heritage Festival in the Keystone Room from 2 to 5 p.m.

The Smith-McFarland Theatre will be host to the Second Annual Patricia Graham Step Show on Saturday, February 22. Tickets cost $7 and are available in the Student Activities Complex on the second floor of the University Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The performance, which will feature students from sororities and fraternities from ESU and other schools, begins at 7 p.m.
