Grammy Award-winning contemporary gospel singer Yolanda Adams will be among the headliners at a free ecumenical service marking the opening of the International Civil Rights Center & Museum in Greensboro.
A 300-person choir drawn from local churches and universities will also be on hand for the event, which takes place Sunday, Jan. 31, at 6 p.m. at the Greensboro Coliseum. The new museum, located in the former F.W. Woolworth retail store where four African-American students from North Carolina A&T University began their historic protest at a whites-only lunch counter, opens Monday, Feb. 1.
