Black History Month
The next Chautauqua lecture at Eastern Kentucky University is entitled “Rethinking Race and Racism in the 21st Century: Emmett Till, Trayvon Martin and the Link Between.”
Eastern Kentucky University will celebrate Black History Month with a series of events throughout February.
They include four events on Thursday, Feb. 12; a “Phenomenal Women” awards dinner on Friday, Feb. 20; and a Chautauqua lecture on Thursday, Feb. 26.
Thirty-four students and six faculty members from Eastern Kentucky University spent several days recently on a cultural and service-learning excursion to Memphis. The trip, sponsored by the African/African American Studies Program, was the culmination of the EKU celebration of Black History Month.
