MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- The Mount Vernon Public Library will present “Folk First,” a program of black roots music performed by singer, playwright and actor Vienna Carroll and musician Keith Johnson, in honor of Black History Month.

The program is set for 3 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 6, in the library’s Grace Greene Baker Community Room.

Carroll and Johnson describe their music as “songs from your granny’s country church down South (or the church that you attend or pass right there in your neighborhood); songs from the vegetable man every Thursday; songs that helped our ancestors endure prison or escape slavery; songs of joy.”

The library is located at 28 S. First Street.

For more information, visit the library’s website at www.mtvpl.org ., or call (914) 668-1840.
