Mahalia Jackson Lunch and Learn Film Event

As part of the centennial birthday celebration of the life and music of Mahalia Jackson and the generous donation of African American films, shorts and T.V. specials that span from 1903 – 1969 from Drs. Lewis and Shamira Brown of the  Brown Foundation we will show performance footage from noon to 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26th in the Vilma Fields atrium. We encourage participants to bring their lunch and watch this historical footage of the “Queen of Gospel Music” on what would have been her 100th birthday.
