It’s Showtime at Washburn

Washburn’s Black Student Union is having an Apollo night talent show to celebrate Black History Month.  The talent show will be held 7 p.m., Feb. 25 in the Bradbury Thompson Alumni Center. There will be various acts including dancers, singers, poets and rappers just to name a few.  

“Washburn needs a talent show so that the Washburn community and the community surrounding Washburn can get together and show off our talents in an environment that encourages growth and positivity,” said Ga’Quawna Manning, BSU secretary.

If students have a talent and would like to perform, here’s their chance to show it off. The talent show is open to anyone at the school and within the Topeka area.

“It isn’t just for black students. Anyone from any race and any cultural background can perform at the Apollo night,” said Porchia Brown, BSU president.

Registration is still open and it’s not too late to sign up.  To be a part of the Apollo night contact any BSU member or stop by the Multicultural Affairs office in Morgan 110. Check out their Facebook page,
