|Black History Month Art Show
This year’s art show will feature the work of some of BNL’s own artists as well
as internationally acclaimed artist & poet, Ainsley Burrows. Ainsley grew up thinking
that the road to fulfillment would be paved with Accounting, Finance and Economics textbooks.
Luckily for him, and poetry aficionados everywhere, he got bitten by the poetry bug and it changed his mind.
