  The African American Music Trail, a living history project spearheaded by the NC Arts Council, winds through eastern North Carolina
  with a daylong event at the University of Mount Olive.  The 11AM lecture will be led by a representative from the NC Department of
  Cultural Resources describing the way the Music Trail project began and continues to evolve.  Jazz musicians from on and off campus
  will perform throughout the afternoon, culminating in a concert at 7:30 by African American music leaders, some nationally famous.
 
The NC Arts  Council says, “These musicians reflect their home communities, and their sounds transcend time and place.  They are an integral part of our state’s heritage.”  This day is supported in part by a Grassroots Grant from the Arts Council of Wayne County.
