Black History Month Events on Minot State University's Campus

MINOT, N.D.- With February being Black History Month, the Minot State Diversity Council has lined up some neat events you can check out for some evening fun and learning.

Feb. 21 you can head on down to the Beaver Dam for a free viewing of Selma, the story of how Martin Luther King still needed to fight for civil rights even after the signing of the 1964 civil rights act. The film starts at 8:00 p.m., it’s free and open to the public.

On Feb. 27, Minot State alum and former president of the black history club on campus, Joe Davis, will be visiting sharing African American culture his way.

The event features a soul food tasting along with poetry and musical performances by Davis and his band. This all starts a little later, at 9:00 p.m. and again, is in the Beaver Dam.

“First of all, to get all of these students and faculty into the same room without it being a 'class', or requirement, is pretty cool,” said Diversity Council Co-Chair, Annette Mennem.
