Fill Black History Month
Though Black History Month activities opened last Wednesday on campus, other events are taking place throughout the month. Many are mentioned in the 93106 calendar on page 4; but some are not, especially if they are located off campus.
Such activities range from art exhibitions at the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center and historical document displays at the Karpeles Manuscript Library in downtown Santa Barbara to film screenings at Santa Barbara City College.
UCSB activities include a documentary film on pioneering black activist and author W.E.B. DuBois, screening today, Feb. 7, and a Thursday, Feb. 10, panel discussion with long-time organizer and activist Jack O’Dell. Cedric Robinson, UCSB professor of black studies, and University of Washington historian Michael Honey will join O’Dell at 4 p.m. in the Multicultural Center to examine “Race and Class in the African American Civil Rights Movement.”
Campus perspectives continue on Feb. 15 when a documentary titled “UCSB Black Political Address ‘03” is shown at noon in the Visitor Center.
A closing ceremony for the month is planned for Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. in Corwin Pavilion.
