Mid City Studio hosts monthly Coffee on the Porch: Civil Rights & Black History Month

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The organization Mid City Studio hosts monthly events called "Coffee on the Porch".

For the month of February, the event will be hosted at Bethel AME Church on Friday, February 24.

The purpose of the event is to connect people from Mid City Baton Rouge. Participants come to a specific location, usually on a front porch, share a cup of coffee and talk about any given topic.

The group believes porches serve as forums for building community. The topic for February is Celebrating Black History Month and Civil Rights in Baton Rouge.
