Episode 2.3 - "Historically Black Colleges and Universities"

This episode of One More Time talks about Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) and their traditions.

Dr. Tonya Mitchell of the University of South Carolina provides a two-minute technique. Our main story looks at the traditions and set-ups of bands at Historically Black College’s and Universities and features interviews with Director of Bands at Bethune-Cookman University, Prof. Donovan V. Wells (who is also a graduate of the university), and Dr. Gregory Drane of Penn State University (who is also a graduate of Bethune-Cookman University). A special thanks to them for their time and for sharing their experiences.
