On February 17, 2012, from 7-8:15 p.m., MCTC, in partnership with the Basilica of Saint Mary, will be celebrating Black History Month with Spirit and Soul, a celebration to honor the achievements made by students of African descent.
The main event, held in the Basilica Sanctuary, will include spoken word, music and dance performances. Performers will include Jerry Steele from the Lundstrup Center for Performing Arts, Papa Diop, the MCTC Jazz Ensemble and Cedar Riverside Art Zone for Youth.
