Speaker series planned as part of Black History Month

Three members of the Shippensburg University community will speak as part of the Black History Month speaker series this month. Each program, free and open to the public, will be in Ezra Lehman Library 205. 

The library-sponsored series is to give the campus community a better understanding and awareness of Black history, its continued impact within society, what it teaches us about diversity, and the valuable contributions that different cultures make in our country. The programs are: 

  • Feb. 15: Dr. David L. Lovett, associate vice president for student affairs and dean of students, 11 a.m. to noon. His talk is Personal Experiences as a Young Black Man.” 
  • Feb. 20: Dr. Steven Burg, professor and chair of the history/philosophy department, noon to 1 p.m. His talk is “10 Things You Need to Know About Shippensburg Local Black History. 
  • Feb. 27: Dr. Kirk Moll, chair of the library department, noon to 1 p.m. His talk is Participation in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s as a Transformative Experience for Activists.”
