Dyersburg State Community College will celebrate Black History Month with activities scheduled throughout February.
Activities include genealogy research presentations, soul food luncheons, diversity dialogues, a gospel extravaganza and a musical concert by Jonathan Blanchard.
Blanchard received his bachelor of science degree in commercial music and master of science degree in music education from Tennessee State University.
A strong proponent of arts education, he conducts workshops and residencies in schools and colleges that celebrate the artistry, history and message of the negro spiritual. He performs concerts showcasing his own original works at colleges, churches, festivals and performing arts venues throughout the United States.
Blanchard is a Lincoln Center teaching artist. He also serves as a teaching artist for the Tennessee, Arkansas and Alabama arts commissions.
Admission is free for the concert Friday at 7 p.m. in First Citizens National Bank Auditorium Campus Activities Building on the Dyersburg campus.
