Diversity Center schedules Black Awareness Month panel discussions

Posted January 29, 2008

The Idaho State University Diversity Resource Center has scheduled panel discussions for Black Awareness Month during February. 

This year’s theme for Black Awareness Month “Come on People: On The Path From Victims to Victors” is taken from a book written by Bill Cosby and Alvin F. Poussaint, M.D.  Discussions will include topics which are pertinent within the black community as well as problems facing the United States. These topics are designed to help develop the critical thinking capacities of participants and enrich diversity discussion both in and out of class.

The panel discussions will take place in the Pond Student Union Building Snake River Room from 6 to 8 p.m.  Dates and topics are listed below:

    • Feb. 5 – Violence and The Blackman

    • Feb. 13 – Media and Community Relations

    • Feb. 21 – Health and Prosperity

    • Feb. 27 – Lessons Learned Through Childhood
