CSC Presents Black History Month Speakers http://connorsstate.edu/csc-presents-black-history-month-speakers/ http://connorsstate.edu/csc-presents-black-history-month-speakers/#comments Wed, 25 Feb 2015 21:25:50 +0000 http://connorsstate.edu/?p=8567 During the month of February, Connors State College honored Black History Month by holding two events with special guest speakers, Dr. Samuel Craig and Ms. Wilma Newton. CSC also offered a Black History course for students and community members.

“It is important to celebrate Black History Month to highlight the various contributions that have been made in our society,” said Freeman Culver, History Instructor. Our students learned amazing facts about black history that is rarely mentioned in textbooks. The traffic signal, gas mask, electrified third rail, light bulb, gas furnace, and the famous Supersoaker water gun were invented by black Americans. Because of Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the founder of Black History week and countless of other major players in American history we can lift every voice and sing during the entire month of February.”

The CSC/NSUM Library has organized a Black History Month display, and Ms. Wilma Newton, the Muskogee Juneteenth Historical Foundation President, spoke on the Muskogee Area African American Experience on February 25th, Karen Harmon, MLIS, Librarian, assisted Majic Fink, library technician, with advertising and organizing of the event.

On February 17, students had a chance to hear from Dr. Samuel Craig, a man who took part in the 1963 March on Washington.

“In any environment, it is important to educate yourself on the past, present, and potential of ethnic groups and the individuals whose lives you happen to be a part of or come in contact with on a regular basis,” said Harmon. “It is especially important in a college setting such as Connors State where helping students build their future, one at a time, is the mission of the school. One way to accomplish this is to discover anew, or be reminded of, accomplishments achieved by groups. Having a month to honor different groups and their accomplishments gives us a chance to learn so much and we are happy to give that opportunity to our students, faculty, and staff.”
