Portraits of Courage, presented by Will & Company, is a theatrical piece which examines noted African Americans and their contributions to American history.  Refreshments will be served.

Miss Representation
Friday, Feb. 24 at 2 p.m. – location to be determined
Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, Miss Representation (90 min; TV-14 DL) uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film exposes how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.

African American History Bee
Wednesday, Feb. 29 at 5 p.m. in the Student Union
The African-American History Bee is designed to promote awareness of the contributions that African Americans have given to society and the world.  The Bee is devised to test students’ knowledge of Black History facts in the form of a group trivia competition. Student teams will be given the answers in advance of the event to prepare for the challenge. Team sign-ups will take place at the MWGSC (BT 1512) or online at from Monday, Jan. 23 through Friday, Feb. 3.
