Thursday

  • Being Black & Series continues…
    • Being Black and Lesbian, Gay or Bi-sexual // 4 p.m. in LSC300
      • Allies are encouraged to attend
      • The intersectionality of our identities are complex, messy and often times overlooked. Our visible representation as being Black often is the only thing that is seen, where our identities as LGBT are either invisible or sometimes assumed based upon our actions and behaviors. As a community we must discuss the historical context, ramifications of our thoughts, actions and beliefs on community development and self-esteem and importance of shared experiences and life stories for our future success as a community.  Come discuss, learn and evolve your perspective on Being Black and  LGB.  Discussion Led by Dr. Kyle Oldham

 

  • Join us for “Southside with YOU” in the LSC Theater at 7 p.m.
    • The film chronicles the summer 1989 afternoon when the future President of the United States, Barack Obama, wooed his future First Lady, Michelle Obama, on a first date across Chicago's South Side.
