More Upcoming Black History Month Events

Next week Birmingham-Southern College will be sponsoring 2 Black History Month events. The first, "Of One A-Chord" Music and Dance Performance, will be held in the College Theater at 5:30 on Sunday (2/26). The event will feature several campus groups, including BSC One-A-Chord Gospel Choir, the BSC Hilltop Singers, and students of the college’s dance program. Come out and support our talented students. Also learn more about the Civil Rights Movement that happened right here in Birmingham.

The second event that will be taking place next week is a talk given by guest speaker, Judge Helen Shores Lee. She will be coming out to talk to students and faculty about her dad who fought in the 1930's against discrimination laws. This event will take place at 11AM on Tuesday (2/28) in the Harbert Auditorium. Both events will lead students to gain a more clear outlook of the difficulties African Americans faced during the years of the Civil Rights Movement and leading up to it.
