CANCELED: Black History 101 Mobile Museum: March 18


The Africana studies program is proud to bring the award-winning Black History 101 Mobile Museum to Buffalo State College on Wednesday, March 18, where a portion of its 7,000 artifacts will be on display in the lobby of the Campbell Student Union from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The museum contains original artifacts of black memorabilia from the transatlantic slave trade era to today's hip-hop culture. The museum is free and open to campus and the community, and will be interesting and relevant to students, faculty, staff, family members, and community partners. Its curator, Khalid el-Hakim, and guest historian Fredrick Douglass Dixon, assistant professor of culture, gender, and social justice at the University of Wyoming, will be on hand to answer questions about specific artifacts of African American memorabilia and about the phenomenon of the mobile museum itself. Please join Dr. el-Hakim and Dr. Dixon at a reception afterward from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. in Technology Building 160 for extended conversation and light refreshments.
