Hi Kevin and Collette:

Just reminding you and others about Black Heritage Month programs 
(http://odime.gmu.edu/), particularly our keynote event. *Dr. Tricia 
Rose, from Brown University, will join us on February 21^st at 7pm in 
the JC Bistro.*

*Her topic is* -- "Love Always Shines": Making Just, Black Communities 
and Why They Matter.

Building mutually respectful, informed, compassionate, and supportive 
communities is always a challenge but doing it among marginalized 
communities on college campuses and in today's so-called "post-racial" 
world and troubling mass media environment makes these efforts even more 
complex. This lecture and conversation will discuss the hidden obstacles 
for making just black communities, the importance of doing so and the 
radical power of love, inclusion, and creativity. This event will be 
followed by a book signing, and books will be available for purchase. We 
hope that you join us for this discussion and book signing.

*****ALSO, you were gracious enough to contribute monetarily to the 
Closing Ceremony last year. The student coordinators would like to know 
if you would be willing to contribute again (in anyway)? Let me know 
what you think.*****
