This community-wide event drew dozens of guests to the center for guided tours, refreshments and live entertainment. Guests were treated to a live reenactment of Mary Talbert, a prominent African American woman who paved the way for a civil rights movement here in Buffalo. Talbert Hall at the University at Buffalo is also named for the activist.
