African-American film and arts exposition Saturday

More than two dozen local artists, including a champion limbo dancer, will be featured in “The Art of YOUth,” an African-American film and arts exposition hosted by the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Buffalo Alumnae Chapter from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday in the Buffalo Museum of Science.

The dancer is Shamika Charles, who holds two world records for how low she can dance. Also performing will be spoken word artists Morgan Williams-Bryant and Lauren Killian, and musicians Rahim Dunston and Karen Saxon. Local authors will meet visitors in the Literary Corner and a variety of visual artists will exhibit.

At 2:30 p.m., a short film written and produced by Pierre M. Coleman, “Hello, My Name Is Trouble,” which follows a troubled young man, will be screened. A discussion will follow. Museum admission is $11 for adults, $8 for children 2 to 17. A limited number of free tickets are available by emailing
