Rock Valley College's Black History Month celebration is getting a musical boost thanks to a local musician.
Harlan Jefferson performed in Rock Valley College's Student Center Atrium on Wednesday afternoon. The performance was part of the schools Black History Month celebration, but the director of the Learning and Opportunity Center at RVC says the celebration isn't just for students.
"Rock Valley as a community college has really invested in making sure that folks within our community are aware of the different cultural events that we plan each year, and we're looking to increase partnerships with different organizations, agencies, and schools in our area to help celebrate the diversity that is our community, Suzanne Dolley said.
Jefferson will also make a stop at Rockford College on Wednesday night for an event hosted by music historian Carl Cole. He will perform at the Maddox Theater at 7:00 p.m. and Betty Pumphrey & the Christianaires will also perform. Admission is free.
The two events are sponsored by the Rockford College Global Education Center, the Jane Addams Center for Civic Engagement, and the Rock Valley College and Rockford College Collaborative.
