Experience the Apollo! Saturday Night

Published: Feb 1, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 1, 2013) — African American History Month is a special time at the University of Kentucky and February 2013 is no exception.

 

Tonight, Professor Amos Jones will discuss “The Dismantling of De Jure Segregation in Kentucky: How Slave Religion, Strategic Voting, and Creative Lawyering Broke Barriers in a Socially Advanced Border State.” The Black Law Student Association is sponsoring the event, which will be at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 1, in the UK Law Courtroom.

 

Saturday’s calendar features UK’s largest community and campus-based talent extravaganza and one of the UK Black Student Union’s most popular events, Apollo!  In the spirit of New York’s legendary Apollo Theater Talent Contest, this showcase of amateur talent offers a fast-paced, high-energy potpourri of music, spoken word, comedy, theater, poetry and mime by student and community performers. Contestants will compete for a $500 cash prize, while door prizes and other contests will spark the crowd.  

 

The ticketed event will take place at the Singletary Center for the Arts. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 2, with the show beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $20 at the door. They can be purchased at Singletary Center on campus or online at http://finearts.uky.edu/singletary-center . For more information, contact Jhavid Harbut at jcha224@g.uky.edu or Jasmine Collins at jasmine.collins@uky.edu

 

"Get in The Zone: Don't Call ME Crazy" is slated Wednesday, Feb. 6, at 7-9 p.m. in 363 Student Center. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Mu Epsilon Chapter is sponsoring the event, which will highlight mental health and how mental diseases are affecting different minority groups. This event will bolster awareness about mental illnesses and minority communities.
