Black History Month is celebrated again with an all-day "Blaxploitation Film Fest" hosted by the Stax Museum of American Soul Music and Memphis Brooks Museum of Art. Three films will be shown in the Brooks Museum's Dorothy K. Hohenberg Auditorium: Shaft (10:30 a.m.), Foxy Brown (1:30 p.m.), and Cleopatra Jones (3:15 p.m.). And while you're there, if you haven't yet seen the new exhibit, "The Quilts of Gee's Bend," you are in for a rare treat. I would wager to say it's the most fabulous thing the Brooks has done in a decade. And speaking of fabulous, this evening's Contemporary Realist Academy Show at David Lusk Gallery is a benefit for the academy, and the work is some of the best you'll ever see in Memphis or anywhere else, for that matter. Today's "All That's Clay" Pottery Show/Sale at The Dixon Gallery and Gardens features of wide variety of clayworks by regional potters. The Cultural Development Foundation of Memphis brings the junior company of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Ailey II, to The Orpheum. The Smothers Brothers are tonight's featured guests at the GPAC Comedy Series. Tonight's show at Kudzu's is a Twang-a-Dang Doodle with Nancy Apple, Byron Hayes, Chris Jones, & Myrna Smith. Back at the Hi-Tone, it's Alvin Youngblood Hart's Muscle Theory. And The Gamble Brothers are at Young Avenue Deli. -- Tim Sampson
