Community Invited to Special Photo Exhibit at Five San Antonio Public Library Branches

San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) makes rich cultural and intellectual resources available to all. Beginning January 10, five SAPL branch libraries will feature “Reviving Benin,” a collection of images captured at the annual Voodoo Festival in Benin, West Africa. Nigerian photographer Nseabasi Akpan provides an all-access pass to performances held on the festival grounds and within the community.
