Black History Month celebrated with film series


February 4, 2013

In commemoration of Black History Month and to encourage unity among the campus and community, MSU's Maroon Volunteer Center is sponsoring several showings from the PBS Series "Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Movement 1954-1985." These showings are being hosted by several organizations on campus and in the community. Come out to see history before your eyes and witness what really happened. This is a great tribute to Black History Month through a film series that you don't want to miss. For more information, contact Stedmond Ware at sware@saffairs.msstate.edu.
