Vol State Unity Week Feb 4-7

Unity Week is coming up this February.

What’s it for?

“I think Unity week is just another way of bringing the Vol State community together … Since it starts the first week of Black History Month, we think that’s important. A couple of the programs that we have that week really delve into some of the history of some of the events that have happened in the Civil Rights Movement and in Black History,” said Jeff King, manager of Diversity and Inclusion.

Jeff said that Vol State has been able to expand on the definition and scope of diversity in attempts to be more inclusive this year than ever before.

Events will range from art, movies, and discussions.

Here’s a list:

Feb. 4    Exhibit Opening:  The Art of Omari Booker, artist discussion, Wood Campus Center 217, 11:30am, art available for viewing through Feb. 15

Feb. 5    Documentary Screening:  Brother Outsider, pizza served, Nichols Dining Room, 11:30am

Feb. 6    Let’s Talk About Our Faith, presentation and discussion, lunch served, Nichols Dining Room, 11:30am

Feb. 7    Soul Food Luncheon, commemorating Unity Week, lunch and history talk, Nichols Dining Room, Noon
