Portsmouth Public Library and Black History Now presents Caribbean Dreaming, an opportunity to explore Caribbean Steel Drums through a historical and musical demonstration.  Learn how drums were outlawed on many Caribbean islands and how they came to be made from steel.  A unique sound and art form was created by politics.  Learn how the people of the Caribbean became independent and at the same time created an art all their own.  Free event.
