On Feb. 8, President Michael Lewis of the Black Student Union (BSU), is hosting Delta’s first 2013 Black History Event “A Past To Remember, A Future To Pursue.”
The BSU committee has not put on an event since 2010.
In hopes of reaching out to local communities, the event is free to the public and will be held at the Tillie Lewis Theatre.
The event will host several guest speakers including Judge Lauren Thompson (the first black judge of stockton), Willie Douglas and Ross Dickson.
This event will also feature live performances by Beloved Sisters, Pop Star Singer A.G, and more entertainment to come.
“We want the students and the communities to join us, in celebrating history. We hope to reach out and share a sense of pride, understanding, and importance of African American History. As the President of The BSU, I have worked extremely hard create a fun, free, and educated event. This event is not just for African American people, but people in general. So we hope, all will come and enjoy this fulfilling event,” said BSU President Michael Lewis.
