SHELTON STATE COMMUNITY COLLEGE COLLEGIATE 100® PRESENTS BLACK HISTORY MONTH EVENT

Tuscaloosa, Alabama – Shelton State Community College’s (SSCC) chapter of Collegiate 100® will host Songs United 2020 to commemorate Black History Month.  Songs United 2020 will be presented on Tuesday, February 18, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. in the Atrium of the College’s Martin Campus.  The event is free and open to the public.

 

Songs United 2020 will bring together the Shelton Singers and The University of Alabama’s Afro American Gospel Choir for the second year.  The two groups will present musical selections to support poetry and historical readings provided by members of SSCC’s Collegiate 100.

 

“Collegiate 100 is pleased and proud to be collaborating with these two musical groups,” said Tiffany Myles, one of Shelton State’s Collegiate 100 mentors.  “Our celebration in song and spoken word promises to be inspirational, and we encourage community members to join us for this special evening.”

 

Shelton State Community College’s Collegiate 100® is the first community college chapter in the state of Alabama and one of the few chapters in the nation with co-ed members.  Collegiate 100® provides an avenue for chapters of 100 Black Men of America, Inc. to continue their one-on-one mentoring program for students as they matriculate from high school to college.  The program supports the initiatives set forth by the 100 Way Across a Lifetime organization.
