Gospel Fest part of Black History Month celebration
Calhoun Community College is planning several events in honor of Black History Month.
This year's events include an art exhibit, the annual African American Read-In, and the 15th annual Gospel Fest.
The art exhibit features artist Johnnie L. Wilson of Huntsville. He is a graphics designer with Cortez, Inc., at Marshall Space Flight Center, but his passion is people, which is reflected in his work.
Originally from Galveston, Texas, Wilson is married and has five children.
In addition to his graphics arts degree, he holds a bachelor's in theology from Word of Truth Seminary and is retired from the U. S. Army.
According to Dr. Izora Harrison, director of Special Student Populations and coordinator of Calhoun's Black History Month programs, all activities are free and open to the public.
