Annual Black Music Month Celebration & Fundraiser

Event Details

Description: By annual Presidential Proclamation, June has been named African American Music Appreciation Month annually since 1979. 2019 not only marks the 40th anniversary of this celebration colloquially known as “Black Music Month,” but is also the sesquicentennial of the City of Durham. NCCU and BUMP: The Triangle are partnering to present our third annual celebration of Black Music Month, shining a spotlight on the power and meaning of African American music and its role in the life of Durham. Proceeds will benefit BUMP: The Triangle, a 501c3 nonprofit music education organization that empowers youth through music of the African Diaspora. This year’s celebration will include performances by the Gateways Brass Collective, Joy Harrell Goff, an NCCU Choral Ensemble and BUMP’s Black Music Month Youth Choir. The concert will be held at the B.N. DUke Auditorium on NCCU’s campus and begin at 4pm, with a ticketed reception will follow. To purchase tickets, please visit: www.bumpthetriangle.org
