Perfromers, artists, alumni and students held a benefit concert to save Carver High School.
This is just the most recent event in an effort to keep the school from closing.
Carver High Students and Alumni have been vocal in opposing the plan to close the school and combine it with Booker T. Washington High.
Friday afternoon those supporters took to the stage.
Carver is one of 11 so-called underutilized schools that the Shelby County School board has voted to begin the process of closing.
It is part of the board's effort to help cut merger costs heading into the fall.
