Black History Month kicks off with 2nd annual ‘Gospel Explosion’

By ALEXANDRA WHITE | Staff Writer

In collaboration with Housing/Residence Life and Dining Services, the Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center will be hosting the second annual Gospel Explosion kick off to Black History Month.

The event will be held from 4-6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 30, in Clement Auditorium.

This event is free and open to the public for all ages to come out and listen to gospel music.

The Gospel Explosion will feature some of APSU’s music groups on campus with many other ensembles.

Director of the Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center, Henderson Hill said the event was very well received last year and a huge success.

Many church groups were in attendance and Hill expects the same kind of outcome for the 2011 Gospel Explosion.

His hopes are all of the APSU campus comes out to enjoy this event as well as the rest of the Clarksville community.

Hill stated, “It is a wonderful accomplishment to be able to share with the community what kind of resource the center has become for the students of APSU.”

This event is also being deemed the AACC’s kick off to February, which is nationally known as Black History Month; however, this is not the only event that the AACC will be conducting in honor of Black History month. Hill says, “this is just the start of what we have in store for Black History Month.”

For more information on events that the African American Cultural Center is hosting, please contact Henderson Hill or feel free to stop by the AACC.
