HCC to host 2019 Black History Month Stamp Dedication
 
WELDON, N.C. – Halifax Community College (HCC) will host its 12th annual stamp dedication ceremony in conjunction with the U.S. Postal Service® as part of Black History Month festivities. The event will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 5. It is free and open to the public and will begin at 10 a.m. in The Dr. Ervin V. Griffin, Sr. Centre.

Stamp to be honored is of Gregory Hines.

The 42nd stamp in the Black Heritage series honors Gregory Hines, whose unique style of tap dancing injected new artistry and excitement into a traditional American form. A versatile performer who danced, acted and sang on Broadway, television and in movies, Hines developed the entertainment traditions of tap into an art form for a younger generation and is credited with renewing interest in tap during the 1990s.

For more information about the event, call 252-538-4320.
