The Brooklyn Public Library branches are celebrating black history month with staged performances of two American Place Theatre productions, "Zora" and "Manchild in the Promised Land."

"Manchild," starring Joseph Edward (left), will be performed at the Carroll Gardens branch (Clinton Street at Union Street) at 3 pm on Feb. 14 and at the Williamsburg branch (Division Avenue at Marcy Avenue) at 1 pm on Feb. 28. "Manchild" is Claude Brown’s autobiographical story of growing up in violent, drug-infested streets of 1950s Harlem.

"Zora," based on the life of celebrated Harlem Renaissance writer Zora Neale Hurston, will be performed by Kim Brockington on Feb. 19 at both the Kings Bay branch (Nostrand Avenue at Avenue W) at 4 pm and at the Central Library (Grand Army Plaza) at 6 pm, and on Feb. 21 at 3:30 pm at the Dyker branch (13th Avenue at 82nd Street).

The performances are free. For more information, call (718) 230-2100 or visit the library’s Web site at www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org.
