College to celebrate Black History Month

NCTC will celebrate Black History Month with a special program in February.

The program “Living the Legacy — Second Time Around” will be presented at 7 p.m. Feb. 21 at the First State Bank Center for the Performing Arts on the NCTC Gainesville campus.

The program will feature special music, tributes and dances, along with a special guest speaker. This year’s keynote speaker will be Cheryl “Action” Jackson. Jackson of Plano has gone from homeless and hungry to distributing more than a million pounds of food through her charity, Minnie’s Food Pantry.

The program will also include special musical performances from the Gainesville Men’s Choir, The Jacksons and the Mount Olive Baptist Church Choir. Students of all ages will also read tributes and two special dances are planned.

The celebration is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Robert Adams at 940-668-7731 Ext. 4344.
