MWCC Celebrates Black History Month with Music and Speaker

In honor of Black History Month, the Student Government Association at Mount Wachusett Community College is hosting a day of entertainment featuring singer/songwriter Rocky Peter and speaker Ron Jones.

The event will be held on Wednesday, February 8, 2023 beginning at 4:30 pm. The event will begin with a performance from Rocky Peter and after a break for refreshments, Ron Jones will give his “Hellfighter” presentation and the event will conclude with a question-and-answer session.

Rocky Peter is a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and music producer. He was born in the USA and raised in Nigeria. His musical style is highly influenced by folk, pop, reggae, soul, and blues. He has an outstanding vocal range and poetic song writing skills. His message is centered around love, unity, motivation, and empowerment. Rocky sings both original music and cover songs. His life story is nothing short of inspiring. Rocky was born in America but abandoned in West Africa at the age of two. By the time he was eight years old he was a child slave and a subject of physical abuse and extreme labor. Rocky escaped and educated himself. Through his rough upbringing, composing music gave him solace. As a result, Rocky uses his music to entertain, heal, and inspire.

Ron Jones has been an educator, writer, actor and social Activist for over 25 years. As a founding member of the program Urban Improv, he did no less that 250 workshops each year throughout new England for young people using improvisation as a tool for self-expression and violence prevention.
