MVA Students Celebrate Black History Month at the Campfire and Variety Show

Students performed poetry readings, solos, and dances during the Black History Month Campfire and Variety Show sponsored by the Black Student Union.

LaRue Howard, award winning gospel singer, was the special guest. She shared a medley of songs representing the historical progression and growth of gospel music. Mrs. Howard also performed the Negro National Anthem. She spoke about the adoption of the anthem, the traditions it supports and the overall progression of gospel music through pain and triumph.

Guests were able to enjoy Willie’s Bar-B-Que and visit the information table set up by the Curly Chemist, a natural hair care specialist.
