This free concert was a special treat for south side residents. The crowd was comprised of both the young and the old, and they all enjoyed dancing and singing along with their favorite tunes.

The Media Connection Captures PUSH Excel HBCU Tour
Students from throughout the Chicagoland area and from states as far away as California enjoy a life changing experience during Spring Break when they travel across the south to visit Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Known as the annual HBCU Tour, this trip, sponsored by The Rainbow PUSH Coalition's educational division, PUSH Excel, exposes students to higher education by bringing them to the college campuses. They tour the schools, interact with college students, and if they are high school juniors or seniors, may even submit applications and get accepted on the spot. Some have received full scholarships to college during this tour, which is captured every year by The Media Connection video crew as a momento for students who attended and a source of inspiration to others who later view it on The Media Connection weekly television show.
