The whole thing sounds like those old-school Reese's peanut butter cup commercials: Lauren Kelly, curator for the 4th Floor Space Gallery at Prairie View A&M University, wants to take two great tastes and put them together. Fusing love and history, today she hosts the lengthily titled lecture "Chocolate Artists Who Make Me Love Celebrating Valentine's Day During Black History Month." Kelly will present a slide lecture of images by artists throughout history who she says "love black people" and depict Africans or African-American figures in love-themed works, and by black artists who "love themselves." And just in case you didn't get chocolate on Valentine's Day, there'll be plenty to go around.
