Local Performance Groups From William Peace University And Southeast Raleigh High School Celebrate African-American Heritage At Progress Energy Center For The Performing Arts On Oct. 24
RALEIGH, N.C. – AT&T North Carolina has announced the Peace Singers of William Peace University and Southeast Raleigh High School’s E-Motion Dance Company will provide entertainment for the inaugural gala that will unveil the 2013 edition of “The Heritage Calendar: Celebrating the NC African-American Experience” on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts, located at 2 E. South St. E-Motion, a nine-member dance company from Southeast Raleigh High School, will perform an African-American themed dance medley during the event, and the Peace Singers, a 25-member small vocal ensemble from William Peace University, will close the evening festivities.
The Heritage Calendar is a celebration of 12 men and women of all races who have contributed significantly to the lives and experiences of African-Americans in North Carolina. The gala, an exclusive red carpet event which is free and open to the public, will be attended by the honorees and their families. The evening will celebrate the invaluable role each honoree has made in weaving the rich tapestry that is North Carolina’s diverse history, and will promote the individual stories and lives of all honorees to inspire the state’s future generation of leaders. It will include a VIP welcome reception for the honorees and their families, a special calendar signing, and meet and greet with the honorees for all attendees directly following the event. Gerald Owens, anchor and reporter from WRAL-TV, will serve as the event’s emcee. All attendees will receive a free copy of the calendar.
Included in the calendar are the stories of monthly honorees as well as historically important dates for both the state and the nation. AT&T worked closely with the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to interview, write and produce biographies for all honorees. They partnered with the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) to develop lesson plans and other interactive materials based on the historical contributions of each honoree to be implemented in elementary, middle and high school 2013 curricula statewide. All materials will be used to spur student interest and understanding of the impact and history of North Carolina’s African-American community.
To reserve free tickets for the inaugural gala, email email@example.com or call (919) 835-1546. Tickets provided on a first-come, first-served basis. To learn more about the AT&T 2013 Heritage Calendar, visit http://ncheritagecalendar.com/.
“We are very excited to have these two outstanding performance groups from the Triangle to provide live entertainment for the Heritage Calendar Gala,” said Cynthia Marshall, president of AT&T North Carolina. “The talent that these young people have will be a great addition to the ceremony honoring so many outstanding and inspirational men and women who have profoundly affected the lives of our state’s African-American community.”
“It is an honor for the Peace Singers to participate in this historic event in North Carolina,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “The honorees have played an incredible role in our state’s African-American heritage, and we are excited to be able to recognize their achievements through music.”
“Our group is proud and excited to perform at the 2013 Heritage Calendar Gala,” said Lisa Yvette Wilder, director of E-Motion and dance teacher at Southeast Raleigh High School. “We are preparing a special dance routine which will commemorate the history of African-Americans in our state in appreciation of this project and all of those deserving individuals being saluted for their contributions.”
