The Black Celestial Choral Ensemble (BCCE) of Syracuse University held their 40th Anniversary show at Hendrick’s Chapel on Saturday. The event, which was titled “Anything Can Happen Here,” featured the current ensemble as well as a mass choir made up of members from nearly every decade of the group’s existence. Several awards were given during the performance, including one to BCCE founder Dr. Rev. Seretta McKnight. Rev. McKnight was a guest chaplain for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2014.

One of the highlights also included the 2009-present alumni portion, which was directed by Byron Canada. We featured Canada on the blog previously (see link below).

Overall it was a very spirited experience.

According to Laurie Kingsberry, an alumni director, BCCE will host the Sunday Morning worship portion of Coming Back Together (CBT) in September. The special musical guest for that Sunday event will be Kurt Carr.

Dr. Rev. Seretta C. McKnight recognized former BCCE members during the program.

On Sunday, Syracuse University’s Multicultural Empowerment Network convened a panel discussion on Sunday to discuss salient political issues such as immigration, health care, media representation and the current state of democracy.

Panelists for the event included Bea González, vice president of community engagement at Syracuse University; Syracuse City Councilor Khalid Bey; Osamah Khalil, assistant professor of history in the Maxwell School; Clemmie Harris, former senior advisor for New York State Governor David Patterson; and Steven Pike, assistant professor of public relations in the Newhouse School and former member of the Department of State.

According to Bey, who currently represents the 4th district, the three most critical issues for local politics are education, healthcare and infrastructure.  And local government is where you draw strength, he said.
