I'm hoping all my local Florida A&M University alums will come out and support the 2014 Florida A&M University Scholarship & Recruitment Tour as it stops at Miami's Historic Lyric Theater Cultural Arts Complex in Overtown at 6:30pm on Monday, March 10, 2014. Almost $200,000 in scholarships were given out to qualified local students last year. All interested students, parents, alumni and education advocates are invited. The University's performing troupe, the FAMU Connection, is always entertaining and the newly renovated Lyric Theater is the perfect setting for this auspicious occasion.
Please note the change in location from previous advertisements. Construction at the Joseph Caleb Center forced the location change. The Lyric Theater is located at 819 Northwest Second Avenue, Miami. If you haven't seen the Lyric through the Black Archives' Lyric Live! talent competition, this a golden opportunity to do so.
We also need to preserve our rich local history by supporting the Black Archives but we'll talk more about that later. A special shout out to FAMU alum and former Marching 100 drum major Timothy Barber, executive director of The Black Archives. GO RATTLERS!
