Tuesday I-Seminar: Black Student Activism & Experience at the College of Wooster

You’ve seen the general announcement of events this week in commemoration and reflection on the life of Rev. King.  Take the time to participate! If you want a full run-down on events, see the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 2014 Celebration page.

We want to be sure you know about one of these events that involves your fellow students in the History Department: Deja Moss, Antwan Chambers, and Ruby Summers. Come out to Babcock Lounge on Tuesday at 11am to hear about their excellent research on black student activism and experience at the College of Wooster. You don’t want to miss this. I include the full announcement from the Center for Diversity and Global Engagement below. Come for the talks – stay for the lunch. Hope to see you there! greg shaya
