African American Festival 2012: Capturing the Culture on Campus
Capturing and celebrating cultures on campus is one way Trinity International University seeks to embody biblical diversity. Come out and enjoy various events highlighting the culture of African Americans during Black History Month (February).
February 13: Monday — A.T.O. Chapel @ 11 a.m.
Join us in chapel with Rev. Dr. Alise D. Barrymore, senior pastor of The Emmaus Community Church in Chicago Heights, Illinois.
February 15: Wednesday — Melton Hall (Time TBD)
Dr. Alise Barrymore will give a lecture entitled “African Americans: Being Authentic, Relevant, and Christian.”
February 17: Friday — A.T.O. Chapel @ 7:00 p.m.
Movie Showing: In partnering with the Multicultural Development Office (MDO), Dr. William Moulder invites the Trinity community to view the documentary Montgomery to Memphis. The film provides a glimpse into the events of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement. Following the film, students will have the opportunity to respond in a discussion with their peers.
February 16–17: Thursday & Friday — Gospel Choir in Chapel
If you have never witnessed a “black church” worship service, these chapels are intended to give you a taste of what that experience is like.
February 13–17: A.T.O. Chapel
Meet Your Neighbor Series: MDO is introducing a new element that highlights some of our African American faculty, staff, and students. “Meet Your Neighbor” is a short video series that celebrates the influence of African American culture in various areas, such as business, theology, philanthropy, self-image, success, and the arts. Each day, we will introduce a new short video during chapel service (grad and undergrad).
February 20: Monday — Trinity Hall (Rushford Commons) @ 3:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m.
Salon and Barbershop: Professional stylists and barbers are coming to campus. They will be providing their services at half price for our community. This is a great opportunity to learn—first-hand from professional hair stylists—a little bit about African-American hair and its uniqueness.
Entire Month of February
During the month of February, the Rolfing Library will have a special selection of books on display on the front book shelves. Pick up one and enjoy the read!
