Burke Singers
January 6, 2012
The Burke Singers women’s choral group and the Schola Cantorum men's chorus from Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) will provide entertainment at the 11th Annual African American Cultural Celebration Saturday, January 28, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the N. C. Museum of History in Raleigh.
In addition to more than 75 presenters ranging from musicians to award-winning authors and storytellers to dancers, this year's festival will also salute the contributions of the state’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).  North Carolina has 11 HBCUs, the largest number of any state in the nation, and all of them will be represented at the festival.  
The Cultural Celebration will highlight the contributions of African Americans to North Carolina through presentations in six categories that encompass culture and history.  The event is free and the presentations will be held in various locations throughout the museum.  For a complete schedule of all activities, go to www.ncmuseumofhistory.org
