Rorie Kelly at Grounds and Sounds - Friday, Oct. 14, 8:00 p.m.

roriekellyRorie Kelly is a small redheaded tornado of sound. Her aggressive acoustic guitar style complements raw, powerhouse vocals to pack a serious punch. First-time listeners often comment, "I can't believe that voice came out of that body." Rorie has been compared to Janis Joplin and Alanis Morissette for her high-powered vocals, and to Joni Mitchell and Sarah Bareilles for her catchy-confessional brand of songwriting.

"Her sound was so powerful, she acoustically filled every square inch of space." - Canvas Magazine

"Refreshing honesty accompanied by an earnest guitar that will make you hit repeat as many times as your heart can handle." - Shelby Padgett, GERM Magazine

African American History and Culture Timeline Now Available

BlackHistoryBarbara Coley, co-chair of Racial Concerns Committee, has put together a chronology of facts important in African American, American and European history and culture. The timeline helps us to understand aspects of our history so that we can appreciate more fully who we were, who we are, what happened then, and what’s happening now, and is offered for youth and adults as a handy reference tool. It is designed to be downloaded in sections, and RCC suggests that users add blank pages between sections so that they can place their own history among the events.
