Subject: Black History Month Activities for this week.

Greetings Mesa Community,

Just a quick reminder of what’s happening for Black History Month this week.

Please remind students of the four Black History Month events happening this week ( Feb 16-Feb 20) and consider offering them credit.  See the BHM Calendar for event links:

    • A) Today Wednesday, February 17th  Agents of Change (Film) and Director’s Talk Back with Director Frank Dawson (11-12:30pm) will talk with us after the documentary, sharing insights on what was happening at the time and how Black Students changed the culture of American Higher Education forever.  This is a must see event for those interested in understanding the role of Black Studies as the first established Ethnic Studies program in Higher Education.
    • C) Friday, February 19th – Black Faculty, Staff & Admin Unity Gathering 12:00-1:30pm (See BHM calendar for zoom link)
    • D) Saturday, February 20th Ask Your Mama: Langston Hughes Project 6:00-8:00pm (See BHM for Zoom Link) BLAS Faculty participate in Panel discussion.

I look forward to see you there.
