Black History the Cuyamaca Way

Come celebrate Black History with us at the Cuyamaca College library! From the beginning of our spring 2012 semester until the end of February, our library display will honor African Americans and their tremendous contributions to American history. We will showcase Black History through time with posters displayed on both floors in the library as well as books featuring famous African Americans and landmark historical topics. In conjunction with Cuyamaca’s Student Affairs, the first-floor display will highlight Dr. Tanis King Stark’s book, And Her Name was Katrina: Life After the Storm.
Additionally, on February 13, 1:00-3:00, Cuyamaca’s Student Affairs will host a campus visit and talk by Dr. Tanis King Starck followed by San Diego State’s Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity performance of Step, a type of dance typically competitively performed by African American fraternities and sororities. For more information, please visit ASGCC College Hour page or contact Lauren Weiner.
