Black History Month and Recent Events on Campus:
Originated in 1926, the celebration of Black History Month is a time to remember significant people and events in the history of the African Diaspora. How important is Black History Month to our nation? How have the people and events we commemorate impacted our own lives? What does Black History Month mean to you?
Other talking points will include a recap from two events that will take place on Thursday night: The Office of Multicultural Affairs’ “We are our Brother’s Keeper: A Prison Visitation Program for Haverford Students” and “ET^2” which is a movie that searches for a connection between Spielberg’s fictional E.T. character and the real life story of Emmett Till. This movie is sponsored by the student group “among friends”.
The conversation will be facilitated by the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
Conversations du Jour is an ongoing series hosted by the Center for Peace & Global Citizenship, Office of Multicultural Affairs, and Student Activities.
