Crisis in Black Education
Feb 15, 2017 11:30am-12:30pm at the Jefferson Campus Student Center Rm 400
Ahmad Ward Vice President of Education at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute will speak on the topic of “Crisis in Black Education.” Ahmad hopes to focus on the crucial role of education in the history of African-Americans. Thus, the nation is asked to look at those aspects of education which can be held up as sources of celebration and examples of contributions to the progress of African-Americans. As well, barriers must be given equal exposure for only then can the positives be sustained and the disparities they have fostered be alleviated.
SKD English Honor Society and the JSCC Black History Committee present “Trivia Night” in celebration of Black History Month. This fun event will be held on Thursday, February 23 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in HSB Room 156. Come enjoy free pizza, drinks, desserts & prizes! Free and open to all!
