UACCM plans programs for Black History Month

The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton, in celebration of Black History Month, presents two free events that are open to both students and the community.  

The following events are sponsored by the UACCM Diversity & Inclusion Committee in partnership with the Arkansas Arts Council.

Dunbar Traveling Exhibit, on loan from the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, will be on UACCM’s campus through Friday, Feb. 12. The exhibit is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Student Union of the Kirk Building.  

Known as the finest high school for negro boys and girls, Dunbar High School was built in Little Rock in 1929. The Dunbar Traveling Exhibit was created to honor Dunbar High School’s legacy as a symbol of opportunity, achievement and pride in the African-American community.

Foreign Tongues Poetry Troupe will perform poetry at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18, in the Fine Arts Auditorium. Linked together by the common thread of love for poetry, this group has more than 50 years of combined spoken word/poetry slam experience.  

Foreign Tongues Poetry Troup shares its gifts in order to inspire, entertain, unlock your imagination and bring cultural awareness.
