Paul Robeson Mahalia Jackson Gospel Choir
Brief History of the Paul Robeson/Mahalia Jackson Gospel Choir
The choir is named in honor of two extraordinary African American talents, Paul Robeson and Mahalia Jackson. Since it’s development by the Center for Black Culture, the “PRMJ Choir” has been supported by many dedicated individuals and local churches. The Paul Robeson/Mahalia Jackson Choir is well received at the University and around the state of West Virginia. In 1992 the acapella choir had eleven members, after going inactive intermittently due to staff transitions, the choir reactivated during the Fall 2012 Semester and hopes to grow its membership significantly.
