Author and professor Alex Albright is guest speaker
Author, editor, playwright, and college professor, Alex Albright, recently spoke to an assembly on campus about the infamous World War II 45-piece regimental Navy band called the B-1. Comprised of black students attending North Carolina A&T, the musicians became the first African Americans to serve in the Navy at a rank higher than messman in the modern Navy.
The presentation was made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and Bladen Community College.
