Tuscaloosa, Alabama – Shelton State Community College’s (SSCC) chapter of Collegiate 100® will host two special events in February to commemorate Black History Month.


On Tuesday, February 19, 2019, at 6:00 p.m., Collegiate 100® will present “Songs of Unity: a Black History Musical” in the Martin Campus Atrium.  On Wednesday, February 20, 2019, at 11:30 a.m., the group will host guest speaker Dr. Utz McKnight, Chair of The University of Alabama’s Gender and Race Studies Department, at “Putting the Pieces Together: a Black History Program” in the Martin Campus Atrium.  Both events are free and open to the public.


“We’re looking forward to sharing these events to honor Black History Month,” says Eric Prewitt, Shelton State Community College Collegiate 100® Chapter Advisor.  “We are proud of our Collegiate 100® students for ensuring these events are held, and we hope that the community will take one or both of these opportunities to join us in celebration and honor of those who made a difference in our lives.”


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.
