Wilsonian Bill Myers, left, was recognized at a reception Thursday at the Executive Mansion in Raleigh honoring African-American musicians and artists in the state. "Black History Month is a time to reflect on the deep contributions made by African-Americans to the life and culture of our state and our nation," said Gov. Roy Cooper. Myers, a musician, band leader and educator, is pictured with Mary D. WIlliams of Durham, a singer, educator and scholar of songs from the civil rights era.
