“Black History Celebrated Across Ursinus Campus”

Subject

Black History Month

Description

Staff writer, Nipun Suri, wrote “Black History Celebrated Across Ursinus Campus” on February 22, 2000, from the Ursinus student newspaper, The Grizzly. Paulette Patton was key in planning and creating cultural and artistic events designed to educate the Ursinus campus community of black history. Historical events were centered around the civil rights movement during the ’60s. Films were shown, brief lectures, and chapel services were held to “honor, remember, and celebrate the past.” Dean Todd McKinney weighs in his thoughts and feels that there needs to be more incorporation of black history than just one month of focus.
