The MSU Department of Fine & Performing Arts,
in cooperation with
the MSU Class of 1968, presents

Let's Go Back in Time:
Groovin' in the 60s

Let's go back in time--when we were groovin' to music from the Motown machine, and the Beatles landed on the mainland, and when the fight for civil rights was at the fore. When we had heroes named Dr. Martin Luther King and Medgar Evers and Ralph Bunche and John Lewis and we had champions like Angela Davis and Robert Kennedy and Langston Hughes and Fannie Lou Hamer.
 
When we proudly grew Afros and long hair, and wore bell-bottoms, Army jackets and dashikis and proclaimed "I'm Black and I'm Proud!" When Jimi Hendrix re-imagined the Star Spangled Banner and Morgan State was a College.

Join the reminiscing and the groovin'! Although the sixties was an era of great political volatility, the distinctive music of the sixties was a great release to the political unrest of the times. In this special event, talented Morgan students will perform some of the most popular music from the era, including music of Marvin Gaye, Mary Wells, Supremes, Temptations, James Brown, Martha Reeves and Vandellas, and the Beatles to name a few.


Beyond song, Morgan students will dance, perform popular instrumental music, and well as spoken word from the period. Many current Morgan students have felt an attachment to the music of this era, and this revue will allow them to showcase their enthusiasm.
 
MSU's Class of 1968 is commemorating its 50th anniversary by selling tickets ($25 General Admission/$10 students & children). Part of the proceeds from this event will support the MSU Student Emergency Fund. Purchase tickets in-person at the Murphy Fine Arts Center Ticket Office or at Ticketmaster.com
