In celebration of National Women’s History Month, Tillamook Bay Community College is presenting The Soul Experience, March 14, at 6 P.M. at the college. The Soul Experience a one woman performance presented by LaNicia Williams, who lives in Wheeler, Oregon.

During the 90 minute performance, Williams educates, inspires, and encourages the audience through storytelling, singing, and musical recordings that showcase the voices of three women and their unique experiences that helped move the fight for civil rights forward to victory.

The performance shares how the proclivity to hate was combatted by the power of love through the stories of Marian Anderson, an early leader in disseminating the straits of racial discrimination in our country; Mahalia Jackson known as the Queen of Gospel, who became a dominant voice in the civil rights movement; and Aretha Franklin who’s voice would break down any force coming against her simply because of the color of her skin.

Williams has been singing since she was 5, and her powerful message of optimism that love heals all will resonate with everyone. Admission is free with a recommendation of a donation of two cans of food to support the TBCC Food Pantry. Tillamook Bay Community College is located at 4301 Third Street in Tillamook.
