Athens, Ga. - The University of Georgia African American Cultural Center will present If It Ain't Got that Swing on Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. at the Morton Theater in Athens. The play utilizes inspiration and laughter to confront age-old stereotypes faced by African Americans.

If It Ain't Got that Swing is produced by Harmageddo Entertainment, a Philadelphia-based film and theater company that seeks to raise social consciousness through art, principally writing and drama.

The production is being held in conjunction with the 50th anniversary commemoration of the desegregation of UGA.

Tickets are $10 for students with valid UGACards who pay activity fees on the Athens campus and $15 for non-students. Tickets are available at the Tate Student Center Cashier Window, open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The African American Cultural Center is an office of the Department of Campus Life/Intercultural Affairs within UGA's Division of Student Affairs.
