Black History Month

Thursday February 11 2010


Step dance and other African American art forms will be celebrated at Lynchburg College during Black History Month.

Step Afrika! performs on Monday, February 15, at 8 p.m. in the Memorial Ballroom, Hall Campus Center. Step Afrika! celebrates stepping, an art form born at African American fraternities and based in African traditions. The group's intricate kicks, stomps, and rhythms mixed with spoken word will pound the floor and fill the air. The event is sponsored by the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Student Government Association, and Student Activities Board.

Night of the Black Arts, featuring spoken word, musical, and dance performances and an exhibition of photography and art, will be Thursday, February 18 at 7 p.m. in Memorial Ballroom. The event is sponsored by Lynchburg College fraternity and sorority affiliate members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council.

Hooked on Love, a romantic comedy for a new age shows the hilarious, and sometimes not so hilarious, changes people endure just to feel loved. Music and comedy take the audience on side-splitting joy rides through the zany world of male-female relationships. The play, performed by Pin Points Theatre, Washington, D.C., will be presented Wednesday, February 24 at 7:30 p.m. in Hopwood Hall Auditorium.
