As this year’s Black History Month closes in towards the end, there are still plenty of ways to get involved; Muse Hall will be hosting a Black History Month movie night which will take place Thursday, Feb. 21 from 7 to 11 p.m. on the first-floor lounge in Muse.
This event is not limited to just those who live in Muse, any student who is interested may attend the event. Since this kicks off at 7 p.m. Muse dinner will still be open during this hour, and students will not need swipe access to get into the building.
No movie is complete without refreshments!
During the event, Free popcorn and drinks will be provided while supplies last, but feel free to bring your own snacks to enjoy the movie.
Muse Hall resident director, Meghan Delsite Coleman states, “I hope that students who attend the movie night will understand that throughout history, although racism has been a blight on the world, there have been many strong, diligent, and courageous African American individuals who have had an incredible impact on history, and their contributions and lives should be honored.”
Coleman, a new member of Radford University housing, also noted, “I hope that students leave the program feeling uplifted, and I hope that they will have learned something new.”
The featured program of the night remains a mystery, so mark your calendar for this event. It’s said to be a fictional movie that portrays the lives of those who have made a significant impact on African American history. Maybe you are in store for a personal favorite or will be introduced to something new you may greatly enjoy.
Other campus events in honor of Black History Month include, Black History Month/Pop Culture Game show Feb. 26 at the Bonnie Auditorium and Black Leaders Attaining Careers (B.L.A.C.) History Month Meeting Feb. 28 in Davis 142. There are also plenty of resources on the main floor of McConnell Library that focuses on Black History Month as well.
