Annual concerts celebrates Black History Month

The departments of music and history held their annual “Songs and Stories” event in Givens Performing Arts Center on Feb. 27.

The program featured various readings and musical numbers from both the Civil War era and the Civil Rights era. Performers included members of the student body and faculty, the University Chorale, the UNCP Jazz Combo and many more— including a final performance with local children.

The pieces highlighted hardships from each time period and demonstrated the evolution of American music.
