10 BLACK WOMEN TEN, an invitational
exhibition, opens Sunday, February 3, 1985
at Gallery 214 in Winston Square. Urban
Arts of the Arts Council sponsors this ex
hibit, which runs through February 25.
10 BLACK WOMEN TEN features works
by ten black female professional artists.
They are Valery Bates, Anne Brewer^
Mable Bullock, Sherida Cosby, Arcenia
Davis, Barbara Eure, Lana Henderson,
Eva Miller, and Valerie Repress. The ar
tists’ works represent a wide variety of
styles and reflect major trends in art.
The 10 BLACK WOMEN TEN exhibit
serves three purposes: 1) it expresses Ur
ban Arts’ continued commitment to minori
ty visual artists in the Forsyth Coun
ty/North Carolina area by providing an op
portunity for display of their work in one of
the city’s premiere galleries. All works in 10
BLACK WOMEN TEN are recently produce

highlights Black History Month (February)
by focusing on minority artists. Black
History Month provides all Americans a
special opportunity to larn about and
acknowledge the contributions of black
Americans to the growth, development, and
prosperity of the United States; and 3) the
exhibit brings arts and cultural programm
ing to non traditional audiences, affording
an experience that Urban art hopes will
stimulate and encourage their development
as consumers and critics of art.

to the public. Hours are 9 AM to 9 PM Mon
day Through Saturday; 1 to 5 PM Sunday.
Gallery 214 is located at 226 North Marshall

Entertainers
MILWAUKEE - A group of America’s most
gifted and respected entertainers have
“lifted their voices” in a stirring, emotional
musical tribute to the heritage and tradi
tions of black America.
Singers Deniece Williams, A1 Green,
Melba Moore, Roberta Flack and Patti
Austin are featured on a new recording of a
song often referred to as the “Black Na
tional Anthem.” Narration is by ac
complished actors Ossie Davis and Rubv
Dee.
The song - “Lift Every Voice and Sing” -
was written by noted black poet and civil
rights leader James Weldon Johnson and
was originally set to music by his brother.
Jay Johnson, actor-musician.
The anthem is often sung at public gather
ings, although the last known recording of
the song reportedly was made at least 25
years ago.
This latest rendition of the anthem, with
arrangements by Leon Pendarvis, is being
distributed to selected radio stations across
the United States by Lite beer from Miller
for airing during February - Black History
Month.
The concept for the special recording was
developed by Mingo-Jones Advertising,
New York, for the Miller Brewing Com
pany.
“The anthem is about faith, hope and,
above all the pride and dignity of a people,’’
said Barry Barrett, Lite brand manager.
