Clarence Carter to perform at Hunt-Bond-Troup Gala
« on: September 30, 2009, 08:03:38 PM »
 popular blues artist is the star attraction at an annual Fort Valley State University Homecoming event. Clarence Carter – the master of “cheatin’ n’ sneakin’” hit songs like “Slip Away”– will headline this year’s Hunt-Bond-Troup Gala at 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30 in the Health and Physical Education Complex. The formal, black-tie scholarship fundraiser is sponsored by the university’s National Alumni Association, Inc.

Born in Montgomery, Ala. in 1936, the 2002 Georgia Music Hall of Fame inductee has been blind since birth. Carter, who began playing guitar at 11-years old, was influenced by blues artists like John Lee Hooker, Lighting’ Hopkins and Jimmy Reed. After earning a degree in music, Carter hooked up with another blind musician, keyboard player Calvin Scott, in 1963 to become “Clarence and Calvin.” The duo recorded several albums on different labels. After Scott was injured in an auto accident, Carter took the solo route, recording for the Fame label and scoring R&B success. In 1993, he made another hit record called, “Strokin’.”

Individual tickets for the fundraiser are $100 or $1,000 for a reserved table of eight. A sponsor of reserved tables receives one full page advertisement in the H-B-T Gala souvenir booklet. The festivities include the Alumni Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, dinner and entertainment.

Tickets may be purchased at the Office of Career and Alumni Services, room 101, Peabody Building. For ticket or advertisement information, call (478) 825-6347. Advertisements are due Oct. 9.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
