8.  Black History Month events   ----------------------------
     In honor of Black History Month, we will be sending out biographies of
Black
pioneers in America who have made some kind of impact within the
Black/African-American community, the nation, and the world.  Black history is
one of many cultural histories that have been left out of our formal educations
throughout the United States.  It is only necessary for us to educate ourselves
about the historical events that have taken place and consequently, have
transformed American society forever.
     The ALANA Student Center will be emailing a biography each day to raise our
awareness of the many intelligent, dynamic, and passionate
Black/African-Americans that have lived before us, as well as those who live
among us.  Student Government will send out a biography each week.  We hope you
enjoy the upcoming biographies and take the time to actively educate yourself
about the Black Pioneers of our time.

          This week Langston Hughes is the featured African-American.

Below are upcoming events focused on Black History month:
2/22 VOICES panel ALANA Center 630 pm
2/28 BSU's Closing event. Time and place TBA
