Black History Month
The New York Power Authority (NYPA) will commemorate Black History Month at the Niagara Power Vista, 5777 Lewiston Road, Lewiston, N.Y., between Feb. 1 and 28 with a display of projects submitted by area students reflecting the national theme: A Crisis in Black Education. As part of the month-long event, the African American Cultural Center will hold a performance on Saturday, February 18th, at 11:30 a.m. in the Niagara Power Vista Community Room. Guests are also invited to enjoy the all-new state-of-the-art exhibits at the Niagara Power Vista. Visitors can take a seat in a 4-D theatre virtual roller coaster ride, create a transmission distribution system on a one-of-a-kind transmission grid table, build a dam or simulate the coordination of power across the state during bad weather. Parking and admission are free at the Power Vista.
