Awakening Consciousness: A Black History Month Event 02/01/2019 - 11:00am to 1:00pm
The year was 1618, the first African captives arrived in America. During the next four centuries, their descendants and other African prisoners were not only forced to shed their culture, but their very identity. Having no rights that the White man was bound to recognize, African Americans were forced to engage in a primal struggle for survival. Today it is time for African Americans to reclaim their true consciousness and return to the light. Please join the Department of Africana Studies and the DuBois-Hamer Institute for Academic Achievement for this Black History Month kick-off event with special guest speaker, film and television director and producer, Leslie Small, Ph.D.
