Concord University will host a dinner theatre in honor of Black History Month titled "The Passing of Pearl," presented by 4Pals Productions. This event will be at 6 p.m. March 20 in the ballroom on the third floor of the Jerry and Jean Beasley Student Center.

"The Passing of Pearl" was written by Concord alum Vain Colby and is directed by Thomas Lester. The play takes place in Memphis during the 1980s in a diner next to the Lorraine Motel, where Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. The message of this play deals with secrets, forgiveness, the Civil Rights Movement and friendships.

A nonprofit organization, 4Pals Productions produces original works that are written, directed, staged and acted by area artists.
