SAU brings NC A&T Fellowship Gospel Choir for Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration

Laurinburg, N.C. – St. Andrews University will celebrate the legacy of late civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a celebration on Jan. 21 at 6 p.m. in Avinger Auditorium on the University's campus.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be a celebration in song, featuring the North Carolina A&T State University Fellowship Gospel Choir.

"We are truly excited to bring back this incredibly talented group of performers for our celebration," said Dr. Rona Leach McLeod, chair of the event’s planning committee.

The Fellowship Gospel Choir was organized in 1969 as an avenue through which students at North Carolina A&T State University could maintain continuity with the Black religious experience. Its aim was to keep alive those religious traditions that have been profoundly expressed in spirituals and the gospels. A vital part of the Student Affairs Division at A&T, the choir supports the United Christian Fellowship through performances in the region.

Additional performances at the Jan. 21 celebration will be given by the St. Andrews University Choir, retired local educator Allyn McLean and St. Andrews Choir Master Ed Williams.

St. Andrews began a formal program of celebration for King in 2005. A Day of Service element, which allows students, faculty and staff members to spend the day working in service to non-profit organizations in the community, was added in 2010 to more fully acknowledge the legacy left by King.
