Celebrating Black History Month

AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn Community is celebrating Black History Month.  The Boykin Community Center held a Black History Month program Friday morning.

This year’s program featured a performance by the Tuskegee University Golden Voices Concert Choir.  A diverse crowd packed the Boykin Community Center’s auditorium to appreciate the heritage recognized during Black History Month.

Johnnie Dowdell with the center says they start planing for this annual celebration months in advance.

“It means a whole lot because this represents us as a people and what we have contributed to the world actually and so it means just a plethora of things,” Dowdell said.

The program featured music, guest speakers and a colorful dramatization of Harriet Tubman.

The Boykin Community Center will continue to celebrate Black History Month throughout the month of February by offering readings and discussions about its history and influential people.
