In honor of Black History Month, the African American Students United organization will present a live tour of black history at 6 p.m. on Feb. 17, 2014, on the second floor of Hinsdale Hall.
Students will take on the personas of historical figures who have shaped black history. Guests will go from classroom to classroom as the students reenact scenes and/or give short presentations on different eras, people and events of black history.
Tours will begin every 15 minutes.
“As a participant, you’re going back in time,” said Detra West, associate dean of students and director of diversity and inclusion. “By the time you’ve finished, you’ve gone through history.”
AASU presents Black History Live each year as part of its Black History Month celebration.
