Weekly Preview: February 10 - 14

The Black History 101 Mobile Museum (BH101MM) is an innovative traveling table top exhibit depicting Black memorabilia spanning slavery to Hip Hop.  The mobile museum is a cost effective approach to present historical artifacts to schools systems, communities, colleges and universities throughout the nation.  On Tuesday, February 11, 2014 – as part of the Black History Celebration – CMASS, through the Malcolm X Cultural Center and in collaboration with other organizations on campus, has arranged to have the Black History 101 Mobile Museum at the Campus Center Auditorium for public viewing.  The exhibit will be followed with a lecture by Prof. Griff of Public Enemy at the Campus Center Auditorium.  The Exhibit will run from 7:00am-6:00pm, and the lecture will be held from 7:00-9:30pm.

Three prominent African-American artists — Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison, singer and social activist Bernice Reagon Johnson and poet and playwright Sonia Sanchez — will share the stage in a public conversation about “Black Women in the Arts in the 21st Century” on Thursday, Feb. 13 from 7-9:30 p.m. in the Mullins Center.  Hosted by the W.E.B.
