February is Black History Month, a time to celebrate and honor African-Americans who have played pivotal roles in United States history. This February, get inspired by three excellent opportunities at UA-Pulaski Tech’s Center for Humanities & Arts (CHARTS) in North Little Rock: Dr. Tererai Trent, Mary Wilson of the Supremes and The Mississippi Mass Choir.
Dr. Tererai Trent, Oprah Winfrey’s “All-Time Favorite Guest”
One of the most internationally-acclaimed voices for women’s empowerment and education, Dr. Tererai Trent is an inspiring scholar, educator, humanitarian, motivational speaker, author and the founder of Tererai Trent International.
Dr. Trent will be at UA-Pulaski Tech CHARTS on Thursday, February 13, at 7 p.m.
Mary Wilson of The Supremes
“Stop! in the Name of Love,” “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” “Where Did Our Love Go” and “Baby Love” are among the dozens of songs Mary Wilson sang as part of The Supremes. The vision of musical stardom that inspired Wilson, along with Diana Ross and Florence Ballard, to found one of the most successful singing groups in recording history, is alive and well.
See and hear the living legend Mary Wilson at UA-Pulaski Tech CHARTS on Saturday, February 15, at 7:30 p.m.
Mississippi Mass Choir
Prepare to be bowled over by the spirit as the Mississippi Mass Choir raises the roof! More than 75 voices will deliver the moving, inspirational message of the gospel with power and soul like you’ve never heard before. Since 1988, the Mississippi Mass Choir has thrilled audiences across the world, while achieving some of the highest critical acclaim possible: Grammy Award (Best Gospel Album), Soul Train Music Award (Best Gospel Artist), Billboard Magazine (Gospel Artist of the Year – three times!) and many more.
