MCC Diversity Team Presents:

Diversity Celebration 2019

MCC's Cultural and Diversity Team invites you to come and experience different cultures and backgrounds on THURSDAY, MARCH 28, FROM 9 TO 11 AM.

This year's celebration will include (back by popular demand,) two separate appearances by nationally-known speaker, author, and blogger, Odell Bizzell. Mr. Bizzell will speak at 9 AM and again at 10 AM in the Blair Auditorium. Don't miss this opportunity to get INSPIRED!

As usual, the event will feature cultural displays and cuisine from around the world. Displays will be set up in the Multipurpose Room in Capel Hall from 9:30 - 11 AM. Attendees will receive a "passport," and for each "country" they visit, they will collect a "stamp" on their passport. Attendees who visit all the countries can turn their passports in to win prizes.

Students, staff, and faculty interested in showcasing a culture are invited to create an interactive display, many of which include food from the culture for sampling. There is also a competition for the best display and the winner gets to show off the unique, exotic, traveling Diversity Trophy in their office area or classroom for the entire year! Contact Diana Sanchez at sanchezd6577@montgomery.edu or click here to sign up. You'll never guess who won it last year (see below).

February is Black History Month

As promised, we're revealing the identity of two of the notable African Americans that appeared in last week's Yourspace. Pictured left, is young Carter G. Woodson, an historian, author and journalist. Woodson founded the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, and established "Negro History Week" - the precursor of Black History Month.

Pictured above is Frederick Douglass, most well-known for his work as an abolitionist and gifted orator. His autobiography, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave was very influential in promoting freedom for slaves.
