Black History Program
Our annual Black History event honors prominent and undiscovered historical figures through reenactment, music, dance, fashion, poetry, and other honorary tributes. It's an all-inclusive community production funded, produced, and delivered through the talents of our community members and affiliates.
This donation-only event has averaged 25 participants of various ages, starting at four years old to elderly adults. As well, the event sometimes features nationally known performers such as Tony Exum Jr., "The Reminders", Chanel, and the Gospel group, "Trin-I-Tee 5:7".
Since 2016, the Black History program has become an eagerly anticipated event, richly attended. Proceeds from the event are utilized throughout the year to fund other fellowship communions such as field trips for our youth and community outreach endeavors.
If you're interested in volunteering to help produce this honorary event, wish to donate, or enroll your children, please apply now.

Each Summer, One Body Ent. hosts an alumni rivalry basketball game to engender the fun tradition and honor some of Colorado Springs' longest-standing high schools.
Proceeds are donated to all participating learning institutions, including Sierra, Harrison, Wasson, Mitchell, Doherty, and Palmer High Schools and athletic programs.
