105 Voices Of History

105 Voices Of History
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on October 12, 2011

The 105 Voices Of History is a Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) Choir National Initiative created to promote diversity in America's national venues for the Arts. It provides a National Platform to increase the exposure of all HBCUs to diverse audiences and its many constituents, from corporate America to the youngest students, who will be attracted by the Choir's performances to pursue higher education.



A National Choir Initiative provides the HBCUs a National Voice to increase their visibility of the valued talents.

The Thurgood Marshal College Fund sponsored the 105 Black Voices Of History Concert on September 18 at the Washington D.C.'s Kennedy Center. The event featured one student from each of the 105 HBCUs. TMCF President and CEO, Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., awarded $5,000.00 scholarships to Symone Haccum from Norfolk State University and Quodesia Johnson from Prairie View A&M University.
