“Lift Every Voice and Sing”, a concert celebrating the beginning of Black History Month, will be presented this Sunday, February 2, at 3 p.m. in the sanctuary of Timothy Baptist Church, 5530 W. Okmulgee.

Several Negro spirituals will be sung by Okiepella and Muskogee A Cappella, who are joining forces for the first time.

Members of the local African-American community will perform readings and poems.

The one-hour program is free, but donations will be accepted for the Martin Luther King Center’s after-school program.
