Making History

(Lionell) Permanent link   All Posts
It’s February, Black History Month. If I have not told you all before I am on the Executive Board of the Black Student Union here at the University of San Francisco.  We are planning numerous events this month honoring the history of black people as a whole. This month will begin with a film screening of the movie Amistad directed by Steven Speilberg about a 1839 mutiny aboard a slave ship that is traveling towards the northeastern coast of America which will be followed by a discussion. Next, we are holding Expressions which is a night where we showcase the many talented students of USF. Whether they do poetry, sing, rap, or paint it is a beacon for anyone to basically express themselves. Black History Month will culminate with the Civil Rights  activist, Co-founder and national chairman of the Black Panther Party.
