The Rockdale County Branch of the NAACP will host its 2018 Black History & Heritage Celebration on Saturday, Feb. 10, 3 p.m., at the Rockdale County Auditorium, 903 Main Street, Conyers.

“We are pleased to be in partnership with the Nancy Guinn Memorial Library to bring several Black History Month activities to Rockdale County.  We are also working in collaboration with Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company to showcase participants from the August Wilson Monologue Competition and to attend August Wilson’s play, King Hedley II, on Feb. 25,” said Rockdale NAACP President Thomas Brantley, Jr. “We cordially invite all to come out and celebrate the contributions African Americans have made to American History and culture.”

The Black History & Heritage Celebration committee, co-chaired by Dwight Wicks and Evetta Washington, has worked to bring exceptional talent to the auditorium, organizers said.

The mistress of ceremony will be legendary media professional Carol Blackmon.   The program will include performances by producer, singer and songwriter Derrick Monk; renowned trumpeter Milkshake Mayfield; gospel singer Monica Hoskins; comedian Big Sean Larkins; Neo Soul/Smooth R&B group Corey Brown and the TCB Band. Youth talent also will be showcased as part of the celebration and there will be a  stroll/step-off by fraternities and sororities.  Members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council are invited to wear their paraphernalia to support their organization.
