Delaware Valley College hosts Black History Month events

To celebrate Black History Month, Delaware Valley University hosts a variety of educational events that will be open to the community.

They include a screening and discussion of the award-winning film “Black Panther” and a guest lecture from Adrienne G. Whaley, manager of school programs and partnerships at the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia.

For those who can’t make it to campus, two DelVal faculty members will do a radio interview on farming and African American history. “Into the Garden” will be broadcast on WDVR 89.7-FM out of Sergeantsville, N.J., from 5 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13.

Two historians from the DelVal faculty, Dr. Craig Stutman, and Dr. David Snyder, will join Milo Morris to discuss his one-man show on his family’s history. They also will share lost stories and political perspective.

Whaley’s talk, “African Americans During the American Revolution” takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20, in the Life Sciences Building auditorium. The free event does not require registration.

The “Black Panther” screening and panel discussion are set for 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, in the Life Sciences Building auditorium. The panel will include experts in African American History, graphic novels, African American literature and film, and more.
