In recognition of February’s Black History Month, Wallace Community College-Dothan (WCCD) BUS student organization will hold a Black History Month Celebration on Friday, February 3, from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM in the Bencze Theater located in Cherry Hall on the Dothan campus. The highlight of the event’s agenda is a History of Our Hair feature. Admission to the event is free and members of the public are invited to attend the celebration, which is sponsored by the WCCD BSU student organization.
“Black History Month is a time to focus attention on the contributions made by African Americans to the United States,” said Daymesha Reed, WCCD Student Life Coordinator. “This year, BSU wants to celebrate our history by focusing specifically on our hair history. Knowledge is power, and it’s important to know that braids, hair wraps, and locs are not just hairstyles—they are our history.”
In addition, the celebration will feature Line Dancing by Ms. D, spoken words by WCCD students, and more. For more information on the event, please contact Daymesha Reed at firstname.lastname@example.org or 334-983-3521.
