The City of Lauderhill’s MLK Task Force in its 19th Year Celebrates MLK Day & Black History Month with its 2nd Annual “Old School Music Celebration” featuring Deniece Williams & Howard Hewett

LAUDERHILL, FL — The City of Lauderhill and the MLK Task Force host several events around the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday and Black History Month.

After the Elementary School Civil Rights Spelling Bee and the Middle School Brain Bowl have come to an end, the Task Force is excited to announce its 2nd Annual OLD SCHOOL MUSIC CELEBRATION featuring Deniece Williams “Let’s Hear It for the Boy,” “Silly,” “Too Much, Too Little, Too Late”), Howard Hewett (“Second Time Around,” “For the Lover in You” and South Florida’s own Old Skool Gang.  This ticketed event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Lauderhill Performing Arts Center (LPAC), 3800 N.W. 11 Pl., Lauderhill, Fla. 33311.

The MLK Task Force Founder and Chair M. Margaret Bates explains, “When I began the Task Force 19 years ago, I never dreamed we would have so many events surrounding MLK Day and Black History Month. With a hard-working committee like the MLK Task Force, the programming has evolved from a single one-night gala to a multi-week educational series focused on educating and empowering our youth. Now that we are bringing two months of activities to a close, please join me and for some “Grown Folk Celebrations” as we take it back in time with Trailblazers like Deniece Williams and Howard Hewett at the LPAC! Bring your friends and family and let us have some fun!”
