Save for Later
The official launch of Birmingham’s Black History Month 2017 will take place on Friday 29 September at South & City College Birmingham Digbeth Campus, B5 5SU
Mykal Wassifa Brown CIC and Blackstory Partnership – Inspiring a New Generation and PFG Consultancy aims to respect the Black History narrative by way of celebrating and acknowledging the achievements, contributions and struggles of Black people.
As we celebrate 30 years of Black History Month acknowledgement in the United Kingdom, our double-bill launch program will reflect this iconic milestone by recreating a magical moment in music history and future history.
‘This Train’– The Rosetta Tharpe Story’ written by Jude Freeman. Before there was Elvis there was Chuck … before there was Chuck there was Sister Rosetta Tharpe. This Train rolls back the years to Sister Rosetta’s 1964 Granada Television appearance on the platform of a disused railway station in Manchester. Featuring musical tributes from local artists, accompanied by a live band, this specially adapted stage performance is set to empower, enthuse and motivate all.
Interpretation of the Youth – An array of talented young artists will showcase their recognition of Black History through performances of inspirational songs, spoken word and dance.
We hope that you will come and join us on this auspicious occasion.
Remember spaces are limited, so RSVP your tickets before Wed 27 September
