ACTC, Highlands partner for Gospel Night

Feb. 19, 2019

     Gospel Night will be at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21 at the Highlands Museum and Discovery Center. This event is part of Ashland Community and Technical College’s free Black History Month community programs.
     At Gospel Night, choirs and individual singers from African American churches throughout the Tri-State will sing the songs that have inspired generations of Americans. From humble beginnings as Negro spirituals, the sound and spirit of black gospel music has become a profound force in American music and culture.
     This year’s performers are from Christ Temple Church in Ashland, First Baptist Church in Burlington, Ohio, and Mt. Olive Baptist Church and New Jerusalem Christian Center, both in Ironton.
     Following the performances, refreshments will be served, provided by Mary’s Kitchen Catering. Other sponsors of the event are the Boyd and Greenup Counties Branch of the NAACP and Pathways.
     For information about performing at Gospel Night, contact the museum at 606-329-8888.
