Black History production showcases student culture

Posted February 27, 2012

On March 3 and 4, ACU's Black History Production will be back on campus in a show entitled "A Walk through Time." The show is a student tribute to black heritage through song and dance, performed by the Black Student Association. It will take place at noon and 4:30 p.m. on March 3 and 7:30 p.m. on March 4 in Cullen Auditorium. Tickets are $5 pre-sale and $7 at the door.

"The production is a great chance for students to share their culture, history and experiences with the entire community," says Byron Martin of ACU's Office of Multicultural Enrichment, who is the show's director. "Our goal is to inform the audience and create the need and desire for ongoing conversation about cultural heritage and ethnic pride.

The Black History Production began in 1997 as a student tribute to African American heritage through song, dance, literature and storytelling. This year's show will continue the legacy. It will feature African tribal dance, contemporary and swing dancing, poetry from Langston Hughes and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, songs from Billie Holiday and Nina Simone, recitations of speeches by Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, and more.
