I truly enjoyed this event from the Women's Center in honor of Black History Month. I believe that events as these are significant in magnifying and bringing light to the complex, yet groundbreaking contributions of black women in American politics.
Good to hear from the new symposia; it was asked of the panelists what they thought the humanities/humanists had in particular to contribute to interdisciplinary conversations. It would be interesting to know what the scientists in the room felt about this. I thought the invited speaker's talk was fascinating and inspiring. There are practical as well as theoretical things I will adapt from the presentation to my own use.
On Thursday, April 16th there was a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new outdoor Little Free Library placed street-side in front of Tribble Hall at the benches. An old newspaper stand from WFU Surplus was recycled into a Little Free Library with some sanding, priming and new paint. Drive or stop by to check it out!
The film screening of Hairspray was wonderful. It was preceded by an informative introduction by Professor Woodrow Hood of the Film Studies program. He was able to share information about the screenplay and characters, which helped to get attendees excited about the upcoming theatrical performance of Hairspray in Nov.
