  • “1619: Journey of a People” — The musical is presented in partnership with the City of Naperville and the Naperville Public Library
  • The 36th Annual Gospel Extravaganza featuring Voices of Praise, North Central's student-led gospel choir
  • A concert performance by music legends The Drifters
  • An evening of storytelling with TikTok star and Chicago historian Shermann “Dilla” Thomas to learn why “Everything Dope in America Comes from Chicago”
Voices of Praise sing at MLK Day.
