Celebrating Black History Month with Master Classes, Performances, Feb. 15

Each February, the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences commemorates Black History Month, celebrating the contributions of African Americans in United States history. The college invites the NSU community to participate in thought-provoking and inspiring events that will explore the people, literature, music, and experiences of black history in the United States and around the world.

On Feb. 15, the college will host an African dance master class with dancer Tami Idun-Ogde. This dynamic class on West African dance will also feature live drumming. The event will take place from 5 – 6 p.m. in the Performance Theatre of the college’s Performing and Visual Arts Wing in the Don Taft University Center.

The next day, Feb. 16, New York-based actor and writer David Mills will teach a master class on incorporating emotional memory in writing and the interpretation of a monologue and poetry. The event will feature poems from Harlem Renaissance icon Langston Hughes and will include a discussion about his life and work. Join in the class and discussion from noon to 1 p.m. in the Mailman-Hollywood Building Auditorium, second floor.

Feel the soul of the streets on Feb. 18, with Zedric Bembry, artistic director of national dance company Live In Color. Bembry will conduct a lively dance workshop on the basics of hip-hop and urban-funk dance. The event will take place from noon to 1 p.m. in the Performance Theatre.

On Saturday, Feb. 19, David Mills returns to NSU, bringing to life the work of Langston Hughes in a one-man show. The Dream Keeper combines theatre, poetry, and song and is sure to inspire and entertain. The performance will take place at 7 p.m. in the Mailman-Hollywood Building Auditorium.

These events are free, but space is limited. For ticket reservations, please contact Chetachi Egwu, Ph.D., assistant professor in the college, at 954-262-8073.
