Georgia Southern’s NAACP chapter is prepared to host its annual Open Mic night in the Russell Union Commons on Thursday.

The 7 p.m. event is advertised for GS students, but participation is open to any interested in displaying their talents with instruments or vocal performances.

“This could also include just giving a speech, if you’re running for something for office here on campus, or if you want to just vent something,” Wyndell Little, parliamentarian of the organization, said.

To signup, students must send an email to the NAACP committee including what the performance is and expected length of the act.

Performances may range anywhere from five to seven minutes depending on the number of participants.

The NAACP chapter on campus seeks to bring its members together and establish a community atmosphere with the student body through events like Open Mic night, said Little.

“We’re just an organization that likes to educate and bring people together,” Little said. “We want them to come, discuss and have an open place where they can actually discuss things and talk to each other, as well as learn something new.”

Meetings for the organization occur every other Tuesday each month at 7 p.m. in the College of Business Administration building, room 1104.
