Black History Month Celebration Set

FEB 10, 2006--Take a journey in history to celebrate the accomplishments of African-American leaders, performers, writers, and filmmakers at "It's About Time," a black history performance on Feb. 24 in North Hall at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls at 7 p.m.

Sponsored by the UW-RF's African-American Alliance, the celebration combines skits, singing, dancing, interpretive dance, slide shows and music. The performance will be presented as a timeline and will finish with contributors of today and also honor influential African Americans who have recently died including Rosa Parks and Richard Pryor.

  "We want to make it clear that the African American culture is distinct and we want the audience to understand the historical aspect of the traditions," says Tyra Nelson the multicultural advisor at UW-RF and advisor for the alliance.
