Daughters of Africa on February 5

Join RCTC Student Life and Winona State University – Rochester on Friday, Feb. 5, for “Daughters of Africa”? in celebration and recognition of Black History Month.

Our first event scheduled for the month is Daughters of Africa, a music-driven history of African American women from slave ship survivors to stars of the silver screen. The forty-five minute performance vividly commemorates both the famous and the overlooked and is an eye-opening celebration of the triumph of pride, determination, and courage.

Daughters of Africa does not pretend to chronicle all of the profound and important moments in the history of African American women. It is an effort to capture the drama, joy, pathos, and accomplishments (recognized and unsung) that have long been part of their lives.

Please join us in Hill Theatre Friday, Feb. 5 for this performance. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the show will begin at 10 a.m. Refreshments will be provided following the show.

There are many events scheduled for Black History Month;? keep watch for further opportunities.
