Lawrence University’s annual Cultural Expressions event, part of the college’s celebration of Black History Month, will be held Saturday, Feb. 20 at 5:30 p.m. in the Warch Campus Center. Designed to enhance cultural awareness through exposure, education and empowerment, this year’s theme is “Celebrate.”
Hosted by the Black Organization of Students (BOS) and the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the celebration features a buffet dinner and entertainment by BOS members, including praise dancing, an authentic step show, musical performances by a soul singers group and poetry readings.
“Our traditions and roots are what make us special. We must continue to remember and embrace our heritage,” said Pa Lee Moua, assistant dean of students for multicultural affairs. “We encourage the community to share and be a part of this wonderful celebration.”
Tickets, $12 in advance, $15 at the door for adults, $7 for children 6-12 and free for children five and under, can be purchased at the Lawrence Box Office, 920-832-6749, or through the Office of Multicultural Affairs, 920-832-7030.
