Miami Dade College’s North Campus to Host 8th Annual Gospel Explosion and Soul Food Tasting for Black History Month, Feb. 8


Miami, January 24, 2014 - In observance of Black History Month, Miami Dade College’s (MDC) North Campus will present its 8th Annual Gospel Explosion and Soul Food Tasting from 5 to 9 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 8, in the Lehman Theatre. The popular Gospel Explosion is known to draw large audiences of all ages and will feature the inspirational talents of local choirs, solo singers and praise dancers from the tri-county area. The event is free and open to the public.

“We look forward to the occasion of our Gospel Explosion, as it fully represents the spirit of cultural enrichment, community, and fellowship,” stated Malou C. Harrison, president of the North Campus.

The popular cultural event is part of the Campus’ month-long celebration that will include educational, literary and cultural representations of the many contributions of African Americans in the United States and the Diaspora. 

MDC recognizes Black History Month each year with an array of community and educational activities at each of its seven campuses. College administrators believe students, as well as the community at large, should be mindful of the contributions made by Black Americans throughout this country’s history, both past and present.
