Delaware State University hosted an unprecedented campus event on April 18 when it hosted the "I, Too, Sing America" Choral Festival that featured performances by five outstanding HBCU choirs from Bowie State University, Cheyney University, Lincoln University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore and the host DSU Concert Choir.

Each choir performed three selections and then the choirs came together as a 300-voice mass HBCU choir. The mass choir performed three selections, including James Weldon Johnson's Negro National Anthem "Lift Every Voice and Sing" as arranged by Roland Carter (who also directed the mass choir that evening).
