ROOTS, POWER, PRIDE 

Roots, power, pride: They're the kind of words that get tossed around a lot during Black History Month. Pat Alexander has used them to name an exhibit he curated, featuring work by eight local African-American artists. Roots, Power and Pride includes jazz portraits, wooden masks, photography, oil painting, acrylics and more. "I think that all of these pieces fall into one of these words, especially pride," Alexander says. The show opens tonight at the 6th Street Gallery inside the YWCA of Greater Kansas City (1017 North Sixth Street in KCK, 913-371-1105). An artist reception at 5:30 p.m. is followed by a poetry-and-drum performance in the Black Box Theater at 7. Participating artists are Michelle Beasley, LeRoy Beasley, Nedra Bonds, Ken Stanford, Ann Dean, Harold Smith, Christopher Madden, Ada Shakir-Mahmud and Aaron Sutton. The exhibit will be on display through March 7.
