Soulful Sounds: Grammy-nominated group Sweet Honey In The Rock Coming to McCain

MANHATTAN -- February is Black History Month and Kansas State University will start the observance with Sweet Honey In The Rock, the internationally renowned and Grammy-nominated a cappella ensemble. The group will bring its harmonies and rhythms to McCain Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1.
