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 Monday, March 10 from 7:00-9:30 p.m. in the Mullins Center.  Hosted by the W.E.B. Du Bois Department of Afro-American Studies at UMass Amherst, the event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.  For more information, click here to visit W.E.B. Du Bois Department of Afro-American Studies.  This event was rescheduled from February 13.

There will be an R1 Exemption Test at 7:00pm on Monday, March 10 in Marcus 131.  Passing the R1 exam (at least 12 out of 20 correct) will satisfy the R1 requirement for graduation but will not result in the awarding of any credits.  A student ID and a #2 pencil are required. A calculator is recommended. There is no limit on the number of times a student may take this test. The focus of this exam is to measure knowledge of basic math skills.

Spring Break starts after your last class on Saturday, March 15!  Classes resume on Monday, March 24.
