Black History Month Event – Backstage at the Cotton Club
The Worthington Atlantic City Campus celebrated Black History Month on Feb. 24, with a one-act play by Michelle Washington Wilson and soloist Barbara Yates. The play, “Backstage at the Cotton Club,” depicted the Harlem Renaissance movement. The Harlem Renaissance was considered to be a rebirth of African American arts. The Cotton Club was a major Super Club owned by Gangsters and managed by World Heavyweight Champion Jack Johnson. It served Whites up front and Negroes in the back.
SGA will present “Young Leaders of the Civil Rights Movement,” a multimedia performance that provides insight to the legacy of student activism and inspires all ages to lead in today’s challenge for social reform.
The performance will include powerful film footage, thoughtful commentary and inspiring musical performance.
Wednesday, Feb. 24, 12:30 p.m., Walter Edge Theater.
Please encourage students to attend. Admission is fee; the event is open to all.
“Trials and Triumphs: The Journey of A People,” a pictorial display of historical artifacts documenting the history of African Americans during the life and time of Dr. Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement, will be viewable 10 a.m.-2 p.m., tomorrow, in Cafeteria B of the Mays Landing Campus.
The display is presented by The African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey.
