Walters State Community College (WSCC) is celebrating Black History Month with a performance of “Lift Every Voice” by the Word Players.
The Walters State Claiborne County Campus will host a performance at 6 p.m. on Feb. 27.
“Lift Every Voice” is a musical production focusing on the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s.
The contributions of many black writers, musicians and vocalists are featured in the production.
These include Louis Armstrong, W.E.B. DuBois, James Weldon Johnson and Zora Neale Hurston.
“Lift Every Voice” also shows the influence the Harlem Renaissance had on more contemporary figures, ranging from Elvis Presley to Spike Lee to Maya Angelou.
This one-act play uses drama, song and dance.
The performance will be held in the campus auditorium.
Everyone is welcome to attend this free event.
