The T. Thomas Fortune Cultural Center is celebrating Black History Month with an Out of Africa experience featuring pianist Brandon McCune Trio  and MJ Towler of the The Black Wine Guy Experience.

In 1998 pianist Brandon McCune was selected through a national audition as Jazz Ambassador to Africa and has accompanied some of the greatest musicians of our time including bassist Buster Williams, Lenny White, Wynton Marsalis, Betty Carter. His stylized performances are also featured on several recordings.

MJ Towler’s The Black Wine Guy Experience will take you on a wine tasting trip through regions of South Africa, known for their rare signature varieties. Towler hosts the popular podcast The Black Wine Guy Experience and will guide guests through a tasting that broadens their knowledge and horizon of wine culture. In 2000, he became the first African American fine and rare wine auctioneer and has been featured in the Wine Enthusiast Magazine and the London based MAZE Magazine.
